JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey’s second-largest city will hold a fundraiser to aid the victims of the typhoon that has devastated parts of the Philippines.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and City Council President Rolando Lavarro Jr. will host the event on Thursday night at Porto Lounge.

A representative from the American Red Cross will collect checks that will be used for the relief effort.

Donation boxes are going up at businesses throughout Jersey City’s Filipino neighborhood, which is home to about 16,000 of New Jersey’s estimated 100,000 Filipinos.
