Our Zubuchon GM is currently bobbing about on a ferry off the shores of Bantayan, and they are having great difficulty landing as the pier is destroyed. Not sure if she is going to make it onto the island today, but we are keeping our fingers crossed. She is traveling with members of the GMA Kapuso Foundation and we have agreed to make three large Zubuchon branches in Cebu City as drop off points for anyone who wishes to donate food, water, etc. for the typhoon victims in Northern Cebu. So if you have friends or family, or anyone you know in Cebu is wondering where they can bring donations of goods, they can drop them off starting 4pm today, Sunday 10 November 2013 at:
GMA Kapuso Foundation will help us distribute any goods received. In addition, Marketman & Family and the Zubuchon Family has committed 100 sacks or 5,000 kilos of rice, thousands of canned goods and instant noodles for roughly 30-40,000 meals that we will start re-packing tomorrow and hope to obtain transport to distribute the goods on Tuesday or Wednesday in Northern Cebu. Our staff are crazed organizing this and our apologies if branches seem a bit pre-occupied with relief efforts. I will be in Cebu tomorrow morning and want to accompany any relief missions up North. Mrs. MM and our daughter will be there as well. Thank you very much to all of you who send your messages of concern and who can spare some food, water, clothing, etc. Salamat.
