AAAW Philippines Relief Fund Project

The Association of Asian-American Women presented a check for $5830 from the Philippine Relief Fund to the Catholic Diocese of San Angelo for the Catholic Relief Services, which recently received a 2 to 1 match for donations.  The funds presented were a collective effort by the members of the Association and by the citizens of San Angelo to aid the people of the Philippines impacted by Typhoon Haiyan. Pictured from left: Rose Ng, Dr. Kathryn Louie, Girlyne White and Bishop Michael Pfeifer. Published on January 5, 2014 in the Standard Times News Paper: My San Angelo.
