In her facebook page, business owner Naomi Corpuz, whose family owns the N. Corpuz Enterprises, launched a relief drive for storm victims in partnership with Farinas bus line company. Both firms are based in Laoag City.

“You don’t have money but want to send in-kind donations to the victims of Yolanda? (Our firm) is accepting in-kind donations at (N. Corpuz’) two main branches as drop off points,” Corpuz said in her FB post.
