WHAT IS NEEDED TO HELP OUR FELLOW PUERTO RICAN-AMERICANS
Punta’s damages are simply overwhelming. The daily challenges endured by the people there are unimaginable. In a trip made in December of 2017, a group of U.S. mainland colleagues, friends, and families helped nine Puerto Rican families rebuild and repair their homes and replace basic necessities like gas stoves, mattresses and roof tarps.

Below are types of donations that are desperately needed in order to make a dent in the severely damaged neighborhoods.
