Local Filipino group collecting aid for victims of earthquake, typhoon

The horrific destruction caused by 7.2 magnitude earthquake (Bohol province) and the typhoon Haiyan (Leyte province) in central Philippines, claimed thousands of lives and left hundreds of thousands totally displaced and desperately suffering from lack of shelter, food, water, medicine, clothing and other necessities.

The Filipino American Community Of Renton And Vicinity (FILAMCOR) launched a campaign to provide relief and support to the suffering victims of these two disasters.

FILAMCOR is a public charity, Washington non-profit corporation and an IRC Section 501 c (3) tax exempt entity. The funds that will be collected for these causes will be deposited to FILAMCOR's bank account and will be accounted as Earthquake and Typhoon Relief Fund.

Donations to FILAMCOR are tax deductible.
