CHICAGO (CBS) — It started out as a simple idea over breakfast. In a matter of hours, there was a room full of donations at the Rizal Center, 1332 W. Irving Park Road in Chicago.
“We have slabs of water, canned goods, bags of supplies. The donations keep on coming,” said event organizer Ray Borja.
Boxes and boxes are being packed and sealed to be loaded aboard a cargo flight that will transport the items to the Philippines.
