County of Hawaii Relief Drive for Typhoon Sendong Victims

In December 2011, Typhoon Sendong ravaged Mindanao in the Philippines. The typhoon and flooding left over a thousand residents dead and many more homeless. Recovery efforts are still under way, and our community can help.

Now through March 3rd, bring your donations of new or slightly used children’s clothing, footwear, toiletries, and school supplies to one of our collection sites. The County of Hawai ‘i will send it off to the Philippines to help the children displaced by Typhoon Sendong.

In Hilo , drop off your donations during business hours at Kama`āina Nissan in Keaukaha or Kama`āina Motors on Kāwili Street. In Kona, you can bring them to the Information Desk at the West Hawai`i Civic Center.

For more information, call the Mayor’s Office at 961-8211. Together, we can help our family and friends in the Philippines. Mahalo for your generosity.

  1. Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
