San Fernando Valley Japanese Community Center President Karl Nobuyuki has announced the launching of the center’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami (JET) Relief Fund.
The SFVJACC is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations to this fund are tax-deductible and all proceeds will go directly to Japan. Donations are now being accepted for the JET Relief Fund.
The center had hoped to provide a winter clothing drive for the disaster’s victims. However, no carrier was available for delivery and distribution. Consequently, SFVJACC’s youth will conduct a clothing drive on Tuesday, April 19, with the understanding that the clothing will be sold and the funds deposited into the JET Relief Fund.
All interested parties are urged to send their donations to: JET Relief Fund, SFVJACC, 12953 Branford St., Pacoima, CA 91331. For more information, call Lois Okui at the SFVJACC, (818) 899-1989.
