Results: This year we have been fundraising for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. Typhoon Haiyan (local name Typhoon Yolanda) hit the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013 and caused major damage on the islands of Leyte, Samar and Cebu. Donations collected have been used to buy tents, food, water and medicine for relief efforts coordinated by the San Carlos Seminary in Cebu and the St. Peter's College Class of '63. As of December 5, 2013 relief goods have been distributed to 3,000 families in Leyte and more goods are being packed and shipped for distribution next week.

I have watched Mel and Elana, their kids and friends through the years working year round, year after year selflessly and tirelessly bring in donations and support for the poor in the Philippines. They are an inspiration to watch as a family and as caring members of the community doing things beyond their core so that they can reach out to others. I would gladly donate the little that I have and volunteer my time to help them reach their targets. This year and the coming years.
