Philippine Typhoon Relief

The University community is keenly aware of the devastation caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. U.Va. employees wishing to donate to relief efforts may contribute directly to organizations serving the Philippines. The CVC-approved organizations listed below are currently providing affected residents with immediate food, water, medical care, and other services.

 Doctors without Borders (medical relief) (CVC #0336)

CARE (CVC #0308)

Red Cross (CVC #3403)
Disaster Relief Supplies and Food

Employees wishing to have their contributions counted as their CVC donation should forward an e-mail using the form below.

“Our goal is to share with employees messages about how they can help,” said Jim Fitzgerald, associate director in U.Va.’s Community Relations Office and chair of the 2013 CVC at U.Va. “While the immediate needs of residents of the Philippines are of the utmost importance, there undoubtedly will also be a lengthy recovery period. We want to be sure employees understand how they can provide assistance both immediately and as the recovery progresses.”

Employees may use the CVC, designating their gifts to any of the organizations serving the area.  CVC donations will be allotted to the designated charities beginning in early 2014. Additionally, employees may forward checks written to the agency of their choice to U.Va. Community Relations, PO Box 400229.
