Chicago typhoon relief effort hits snag

Chicago’s effort to help the typhoon victims in the Philippines has hit a snag.

There is a mountain of donated food, clothing and other emergency supplies at the Rizal Center on Irving Park Rd., but only one cargo plane to deliver it; and it’s not yet clear when the plane will be available.

It was supposed to leave O’Hare later today; it may take two or more planes to accommodate all of the donations.

Organizers of the collection drive say they’ve already received 5,000 boxed full of donated goods; that more than 20 times what they expected to get.
