IT&E subscribers make a difference in Typhoon Mangkhut relief through text-to-donate campaign
HARMONG, Guam - IT&E subscribers donated a total of $1,500 to help victims of Typhoon Mangkhut. The donations were divided equally between Rota and Guam and presented to the NMI and Guam chapters of the American Red Cross to support relief efforts, like providing necessities and services. Subscribers contributed via a text-to-donate line from September 18 to October 3.
“It’s inspiring to see the generosity of our community at work. Thanks to our subscribers’ donations, the American Red Cross is able to provide hot meals, much-needed supplies, and even financial help to people who have lost so much in this disaster.”
