Filipino Facebook Group helps Gaston teachers


Perlinda Cueto and Christelle Corpin are new roommates after finding each other on a Filipino Facebook group. They teach Gaston County elementary and high schools, respectively. They both worked with an international job agency that pays for their flight to the US, but nothing more. 

When they arrived, they needed winter clothes, furniture, and even bed sheets. They put out a call on Facebook to a Filipino American group, and the response was overwhelming. They now have many of the things they need.

If you would like to help, they are still collecting food items, clothes, and furniture.You can contact Ms. Corpin at [email protected]
