(Press Release) — The Joeten Group of Companies’ charitable arm, the Joeten Daidai Foundation, donated a total of $40,000 cash and in-kind to the American Red Cross-NMI Chapter on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 towards the relief efforts of Super Typhoon Yutu, which devastated the islands of Saipan and Tinian on October 25, 2018.

“The American Red Cross is a well-structured, reputable organization which has been in existence for over 100 years,” stated foundation executive director Patty T. Palacios.  “With the assistance of the many devoted volunteers that have dedicated their time and efforts, we trust that the donation will surely reach those who are in need. The American Red Cross NMI Chapter has proven themselves time and time again of their ability to respond quickly, efficiently, and effectively in the face of countless disasters.  We are happy to support them in their commitment to helping our people, our island, our CNMI.”
