FRIENDS of CW organizer Irene Holl said they distributed 150 care packages to guest workers on Tinian who were either terminated or furloughed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The distribution was held Saturday at Natibu Park from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“It was very smooth and the people were very thankful,” Holl said.

Ten unclaimed care packages were turned over to San Jose Church pastor Rev. Fr. Anthony O. Aguason for distribution, she added.
