Through conducting different fund-raising activities such as dinner dances and selling of raffle tickets, the Fil-Am Pag-Asa Club, Inc. based in New Jersey, Bloomfield is able to help children in need through Bantay Bata 163. The group has been a regular donor of the non-government organization. For this year, they personally went to Bantay Bata office to officially turn-over their donation amounting to 4,000 US Dollars.

Their donation will be used for children who are Yolanda survivors and for the operations of Bantay Bata 163.
