***** A Important Message from our Caterer *****

In light of the recent calamity in the Philippines, as a tribute to my country, I would like to introduce you to some (only some) of the dishes that we would normally prepare during special occasions. This is far and beyond your budget but I am appealing for your help. Knowing what it is like to experience what my people are going through with the aftermath of the typhoon, I find it very difficult not to do something. A group of women in Caledon Village, including myself, are trying to collect donations to fill one shipping container and enough money to pay for shipping cost.

This is just a short list of items we are looking for, what I can come up at the moment and it is not limited.
• Rice
• Oatmeal
• Canned goods
• Canned meat - luncheon meat, corned beef, tuna, etc.
• Bags of any Dried beans
• Barley
• Instant coffee
• Sugar
• Basically anything that will not rot during its transit for 8 weeks.
• Light beddings like bed sheets
• Children's clothing
• Rain coats
• Rain boots

We are also looking for monetary donation to help us pay for shipping.

I cannot express my gratitude for what your club is doing to help us and my people. It is very sad especially around this time of the year because Christmas and new year is the most important time of the year. Children go carolling and festivities are usually happening in every village large or small. This year, the affected regions will be tremendously disheartened but I am sure, knowing the characteristic of my people, they will find a way to smile.

Please know that your help will bring a smile (truly) to my people.

I would like to thank you for your support.
