"It seemed like the right thing to do after seeing and hearing all the devastation in the media and the many lives lost in this tragic event. I also encourage other GCA members to help in this cause by making monetary donations to the Japan Club of Guam who will then turn over these funds to the Japanese Consulate office," said Tom Nielsen, president of Maeda Pacific.
