POTTSVILLE — An effort to help victims of the typhoon in the Philippines is underway in Schuylkill County.
For the last two days, children and parents have stood on street corners and in front of the Giant supermarket in Pottsville collecting monetary donations.
“We’re trying to help the Philippines. I have children myself; I definitely feel their pain. We’re trying our best and that we care,” said Robert Scifo with Operation Save The Kids.
The group in Pottsville had raised about $900 so far.
They tell us the money will be used to buy non-perishable goods and ship them overseas.
