COMMUNITY advocate Irene Nepomuceno Holl and friends will distribute care packages to workers on CW-1 permits who have been furloughed and are not receiving any government assistance.

She said there are over 300 individuals on the list she compiled, but added that she and her friends can only help 50 due to limited funding.

“This is an ongoing program so as soon as we receive more donations and funding we will continue distributing care packages to community members who need them,” Holl said.

The initial date of distribution is this Friday.

Holl said she and her friends are receiving donations and commitment to donate from people on Saipan, Guam, and the U.S. mainland.

This week, she added, they are hoping to collect at least $1,000 to buy grocery items for care packages.

Holl said they are also planning to distribute care packages to senior citizens, single parents, sick people, and the less fortunate.

“It’s just amazing that people are willing to help those who need it,” she added.

Holl, an active member of the Rotary Club of Saipan, said the club will also distribute care packages to other individuals, regardless of their ethnicities, who have been furloughed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Holl is also a member of the Saipan Marianas Lions Club and the State Rehabilitation Council of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation.
