As of Tuesday, more than 120 individuals had availed themselves of the free items, outreach staff member Antonia Leskosek said.

“We give each family member five pieces of clothes,” she said.

She said most of the recipients are from Dandan, Koblerville, and Chalan Kanoa.

On Nov. 17, Saturday, EVM volunteers will distribute clothes in Chalan Kanoa and Koblerville, Leskosek said.

 “Although Rose [Smith, the foundation president] is off-island we continue to serve the community,” Leskosek added.

EVM’s outreach center, which is currently administered by Ana McHahon, is still receiving donations for typhoon victims.

Last week, EVM received five boxes of used clothes.

EVM’s staff members and volunteers are Christina Sakaziro Veisinia Peteru, Antonia Leskosek, Ana McMahon and Doris Esteban.

EVM also has two student volunteers from Marianas High School.
