Needed Volunteers for Relief Efforts

Just doing this to help out in my own small way.


Angel Brigade Drop Off Center needs more volunteers to repack 1000 bags. Rizal Drive corner 4th Street, Bonifacio Global City (across Pacific Plaza Towers). It is open from 7AM-10PM. Let’s continue the Bayanihan spirit!

San Antonio Church Makati needs help loading relief goods tonight. Please proceed to San Antonio Parish Center rooms 1-4.

If you are in the Makati area, you can drop off your donations at Santuario de San Antonio, McKinley Road. They are packing the relief goods also for RC. A summary below of how the relief packs are made by the RC so if you can already pack what you are donating that would save the RC volunteers time. Please mark your plastic bags so that RC volunteers will know what’s inside.

Bulk of the work there is in segregating the donation of clothes, linen, towels and mats and packing these into small plastic bags in the following manner:

Pack A: (packed in plastic bag then rolled in a small banig and tied by string/lubid)
– 1 small banig
– 1 towel
– 1 set, adult clothes
– 1 set, child clothes
(rolled bundle is about 24 in. in length-like a lumpia)

Pack B: (all packed in plastic bag)
– linen
– 1 towel
– 1 set, adult clothes
– 1 set, child clothes

Please segregate and pack in this manner to save the RC the trouble of sorting and repacking.

The Shaw office hasn’t started segregating the food donations as of 5pm, so just bring the boxes there as you will.

Recommended donation for food:

small canned goods (sardines, corned beef, luncheon meat)
instant noodles
mineral water

Here’s the type of food that they will be needing:
– bottled water
– instant noodles
– biscuits
– canned goods

Others: clothes + linen + towels
Pls make sure that clothes are wearable
balikbayan boxes also and blankets and banigs

Ateneo is still open for donations. We are much in need of canned goods. Please proceed to the college covered courts if you are near the area. You can also volunteer in the clean up operations in Provident Village, Nangka in Marikina, and other Gawad Kalinga sites of Ateneo. Contact Mark Lawrence Cruz of GK-Ateneo 09178933003. Let’s all do our best to help out in anyway we can.

Cainta, Rizal is one of the worst hit municipalities by the typhoon outside of Metro Manila. Right now, they really need cooked food. This is an emergency measure for the time being because some of the victims haven’t eaten the past couple of days and have no way to cook their own food. The relief goods that you can send immediately apart from food are warm clothes, blankets, medicines. If you can send immediate help please contact Rica Cuyugan at 09172700392 and 09228838972. The roads to Cainta are still flooded so they will also need trucks to transport the relief goods there. If you want to volunteer, you can also contact Rox Oquendo of KIDS Foundation at 09228543733. Please spread the word.
