FSNI Puerto Rico Relief Phase II

$2,250 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 8 months
Created April 9, 2018
FSNI
FSNI - Family Services Network International was tasked with sending aide to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in November 2017.  We were able to help the people with essentials like water, food, clothing, furniture, adult care items, female hygiene items, and baby items just to name a few. 

We spent one week visiting families in 11 different cities across the island and created relationships with several nursing homes, and local relief centers/non-profits.  The goal was to create a network of individuals and organizations who we could partner with to provide aide in a more efficient manner during the second phase of our project.   

All of the funds donated will go to providing aide to the people of Puerto Rico.  FSNNY will be sponsoring the transportation cost which allows for us to use 100% of the proceeds for the people of Puerto Rico! 

Our goal on the first trip was to raise $3000 and we accomplished it thanks to the support of so many people who heard about our campaign. 

This time we want to raise $10,000!!! 

We are looking to provide relief for the families who were located in areas difficult to reach.  We realized on our first trip that some people had water and lights, but there were so many who did not.  Not to mention the others who were too far to get anything (including government aide).  We want to provide aide to those that can't be reached conventionally.  

Our Phase 2 trip will be set for June and late August.  We thank you in advance for helping us give back to Puerto Rico and will keep you posted on our mission as we continue to prepare!

Puerto Rico Se Levanta!

Hello Donors of FSNI's PR Phase 2 Relief Project,

Phase 2 has been well under way! We have selected our 11 sites in Puerto Rico with the help of local leaders who have been working tirelessly to provide shelter and resources to the many displaced families post Hurricane Maria. One of those sites will be completely dedicated to home repairs and roof repairs. Another will be given resources to become a community shelter/Emergency Shelter very high in the mountains of Lares. We will also be assisting a converted school by helping them with supplies and materials to create apartments for displaced families. All of this would not be possible without your generous donations! We are itemizing our final shipping lists and will be sharing our numbers with you so you can see how your donations have been used. We are set to hit the island September 14th 2018 and will keep you posted every step of the way!

Quick update everyone! We recently went to PR to begin our phase 2 Relief efforts, and We are happy to report that we have successfully met with folks in all of the locations we plan to help during Phase 2! Our most recent trip was designed to meet with local groups and leaders. We went to Aguadilla, Orocovis, Isabella, Loíza, and Trujillo Alto. These locations will be ground zero for our Relief efforts along with Ponce. The goal is to cater containers, to each specific town, so that we are providing them with exactly what they need, and making our efforts much more effective. We also are putting together a small documentary based on our most recent trip to the island. Stay tuned and please continue to share this campaign. More updates to come very soon!

We attended a Town Hall hosted by CrazyLegs, who has been instrumental in the Relief efforts for Puerto Rico. He and his team have been working together to provide Water Filtration systems via Waves for water, working with local farmers and the deaf community to help them gain access to resources and support, partnering to provide solar lamps for the island, just to name a few. We are looking forward to working with these amazing individuals to continue providing assistance to Puerto Rico! We are so grateful for their example!
