Glendale Heights Typhoon Relief for the Philippines

In the wake of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that ravished the central Philippines on Friday, November 8, the Village of Glendale Heights President Linda Jackson and Board of Trustees are supporting the Glendale Heights Barangay Lions Club in their typhoon relief efforts. "This disaster has hit close to home, as many Village employees and residents are concerned for the well being and safety of family members who live in the hardest hit areas," said President Linda Jackson.

The Village of Glendale Heights and Barangay Lions Club are monitoring the donation efforts to determine the best time to hold a donation drive since there are currently significant challenges to getting supplies to the affected areas in the Philippines. “Right now we are being told that the humanitarian organizations are overwhelmed with the amount of material donations coming in, so we have decided to focus our efforts on urging residents to give monetary donations for now. These types of national disasters are still in major recovery and rebuilding long after the first initial newscasts break the story, so we will work with the Barangay Lions Club after the new year in hopes to make the greatest impact over the long-term,” said Tanya Macko, Village of Glendale Heights Community Outreach Specialist. Those concerned can follow developments at the website of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (www.ndrrmc.gov.ph).

The Glendale Heights Barangay Lions Club will be partially dedicating this year’s “Christmas Carols for the Needy” proceeds to the Philippines Disaster Relief program. The caroling will take place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays beginning November 30 through December 22, 2013. For more information visit http://www.ghbarangayil.org/, or send an email to contact@ghbarangayil.org.

For monetary donations, residents can contact:
• The American Red Cross Typhoon Appeal (1-800-Red-Cross) or www.redcross.org, or
• The Philippine National Red Cross at www.redcross.org.ph/donate

For any additional information, please contact the Mayor's Office at (630) 909-5303 or Tanya Macko Community Outreach Specialist at (630) 909-5459.
