NEW YORK — The NBA and the NBA Players Association have made a second $250,000 donation toward relief efforts in the Philippines, this time to World Vision.

World Vision said it sent a flight Monday to Manila that included 5,000 blankets and 3,000 tarpaulins to be used to help survivors build temporary shelters following Typhoon Haiyan, which may have left thousands dead. World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization, said there are nearly 400,000 people affected by the disaster.
