Nonprofits, Partners Prepare Relief Supplies for CNMI - November 2018

DONATION: The Ayuda Foundation is working with local businesses and island residents to help Guam's neighbors to the north in the aftermath of Supertyphoon Yutu. Asia Pacific Wholesalers loaded a container full of supplies on Veterans Day and the 18 pallets of disposable diapers, baby wipes and women's sanitary pads will be donated to the Lady Diann Torres Foundation, a CNMI nonprofit organization. The donated items, with an estimated value of $50,000, are set to be shipped today by American President Lines. "Our company stands ready to continue to assist in bringing much-needed support to our brothers and sisters in the NMI who are suffering," said Deepak Dewan, president and owner of Asia Pacific Wholesalers. "We've been through times like this before, and we've always come together as one to help one another. This time is no different. This is one archipelago, one Marianas."
