Thousands of people are waiting for help after a typhoon heavily damaged parts of the Phillipines over the weekend.

Ray Pascua the General Chair of the Filipino-American Community of the Yakima Valley says they are reaching out hoping to do what they can to help. He says they are working with other Filipino American Community groups in the state. “We are hoping to join forces and pool our resources to help those in need.”

Pascua says they have also set up the Phillipine Super Typhoon Fund at Key Bank in Yakima.

They are also urging people to give to the American Red Cross. Money from the fund at Key Bank will be given to aid agencies like The Red Cross and Catholic Relief Services.

Pascua says only one member of the local community has family in the area effected but the family members are OK.
