Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013 and was recorded as the most powerful tropical storms to reach landfall anywhere in the world. It brought torrential rain, sustained winds of over 195mph and a storm surge of up to 30 feet.  Thousands of lives were taken and those who survived were forced from their homes and are in desperate need of aid.

News reports have warned that the recovery of Typhoon Haiyan is going to be a long operation. Official partners of Red Cross Philippines, LBC Express, located at 6306 Gravel Avenue Unit B, Alexandria, VA, 22310, will be opening their warehouse doors on Saturday, November 30, 2013, 9am-6pm, to collect essential items for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.  They are hoping for donations in the form of:

· CANNED FOOD (please ensure expiry dates are from February 2014 onwards)


· SURVIVAL EQUIPMENT (tents, blankets, flashlight, batteries etc)


· CLOTHING (in good condition)


Please consider donating to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.  All items collected will be shipped to the Red Cross Philippines, by LBC Express, free of charge.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
