To help those in the Philippines devastated by typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, IT&E CNMI is hosting a text-to-donate campaign from Nov. 18 to 26, 2020. All funds raised will support relief efforts spearheaded by the Office of Philippine honorary consul Glicerio “Eli” Arago and the United Filipino Organization.
According to news reports, Super Typhoon Rolly (also known as Typhoon Goni) was the strongest typhoon of 2020 when it hit the Philippines on Oct. 31, affecting an estimated 1.6 million people. Just 11 days later, Typhoon Ulysses (also known as Typhoon Vamco) battered the same and other areas, causing extreme flooding that destroyed homes and displaced hundreds of thousands.
“We understand the plight of the Filipinos and are committed to helping those in need. Every dollar raised for relief efforts by the Office of Philippine Honorary Consul Glicerio “Eli” Arago and the United Filipino Organization will go a long way to help uplift those that are struggling to recover from these disasters,” said Rose Soledad, general manager of IT&E.
IT&E postpaid and prepaid subscribers can help those in need by donating in increments of $1, $3, and $5 by texting their donation to 4357 (HELP).
