Thousands of people are still struggling after typhoon Haiyan.

Thousands of people are still struggling after typhoon Haiyan.

But there is a way those in one ArkLaTex town can help.

This Saturday, Vanderhoof Garden Center in Texarkana is hosting a big fundraiser.

They're partnering with the American Red Cross.

All money raised from tree, shrub, and food sales will be donated.

The goal is to raise more than $1,000.

"I don't think a lot of people know that there is such a large population of Filipino people here," said Brenda Pettibon. "So it's affecting Texarkana whether we realize it or not, it's affecting our neighbors, coworkers, so this is our way to help."

The event is this Saturday from 9am-3pm.

Monetary donations will also be accepted.
