Address correction

I apologize for the incorrect post office box number in the address for donations to the Filipino-American Association of North County (FAANC). The correct address is: Meth Vicente, P.O. Box 4408, Paso Robles, CA 93447. The all-volunteer group wishes to thank everyone for the generous donations, which are helping them purchase and send much-needed supplies to the people whose lives have been devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.
