THE Korean Community of Saipan is raising funds for typhoon victims by selling new clothes at  affordable prices at the Korean Community Center in San Antonio from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“These are all new clothes sent to us from friends in Korea,” the group’s secretary, Simon Sin, said.

For sale are women’s and men’s clothes, tops, shirts, jackets and t-shirts with prices ranging from $2 to $4.
