Here’s another way to help the flood victims if you want to drop off food, water, clothing, candles, flashlights, and any other goods appropriate for the flood victims at convenient locations in Makati and Cubao. This is a relief effort organized by friends who I know and whose intentions I trust absolutely. Margarita and Oye Fores have informed me of the following details of this effort:

“Donations of food, water, and other goods, in any amount, can be dropped off at White Space or Cubao, location and contact details below. Volunteers are also welcome to help re-pack goods. And anyone who wishes to assist in the distribution and delivery of relief goods would also be greatly appreciated.”

White Space (re-packing until end of business today, but still open as a drop-off point for goods for the next few days)
2314 Chino Roces Avenue Extension
(formerly Pasong Tamo Extension)
Makati
Contact: Rosanna
+63 917 830 5053

Cubao
Expo Centro
EDSA corner Gen. MacArthur Avenue
Araneta Center
Cubao, QC
Contact: Riza
+63 917 839 5332

The needs are immense, and I strongly encourage everyone to help in some small way, either with goods or your time… Thank you very much.

    MM, the organizers/volunteers/donors @ whitespace are heroes themselves. Been working there for four days (today is my fifth and last until operations resume) and they are organized, resourceful, untiring and positive. No one is ever “too tired”. The quality and quantity of donations is staggering. What a wonderful, private effort that has sent out thousands and thousands of the most complete, best-packed relief packages.

    Hello MM, was there on Tuesday to drop off food and clothes. We were enormously impressed by the number of volunteers working there. Hats off to myra-p and everyone involved.

    we believe that the great filipino spirit that shone through these past week should not be forgotten and we want the blog to be a repository of this memory

    hi MM, i am overwhelmed by the outpouring of support to the victims, indeed, a little help goes a long way…i have also compiled and re-posted lists of other centers to reach more people to help, including your post, here at my site: http://mymomfriday.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-we-can-send-help-after-storm.html
    With your reach, I am sharing this sad and appalling news from my husband’s employee living in a village beside Provident Vill. Marikina, that, according to some residents there, donations coming in, like from Ateneo, are “blocked” (harang) by the barangay hall who are prioritizing their employees and their relatives with the goods, while residents are waiting desperately for the relief to reach them…I hope this is not true in all other areas.
