DANBURY - Members of the Filipino-American Association of Western Connecticut have started relief efforts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philipines.

They've made plans for a fundraiser at St. Peter's Church in Danbury on Nov. 23. All proceeds will go directly to towns and schools that were devastated.

Nona Malaguit, the president of the association, says members who haven't been in touch with relatives in the Philippines can only pray for some good news soon.

Malaguit says it's been impossible for the group's 85 families to get in touch with relatives from regions of the country that are still without power, like the Oriental Mindoro region.

The association is collecting canned food, blankets, and nonperishable items.
