BELLA VISTA, AR--After typhoon Haiyan hit hard in the Philippines, one local group is raising relief funds.

They're calling themselves "PR3" which stands for Philippines, relief, rebuild, restore. Made up of local family and friends, they're hoping to raise money for those affected by the typhoon and distribute funds directly to local representatives in the Philippines.

Group leader, Marc Henning, said "To this day some of them havent had any real relief that's gotten into their towns so we're trying the best we can to raise some money to get some money and some goods to them as quickly as we can."

The group spent hours Saturday making hundreds of spring rolls to sell on Sunday.

"We have somebody or know somebody that was affected there. Several members of our group actually have families that have been devastated by the typhoon that were in the hardest hit areas."

They will be selling the spring rolls out front of Allen's Foods in Bella Vista on Sunday between 11am and 4pm and accepting any clothes and non-perishable foods for donation.
