Angel Rios Cruz Generator

$970 of $860 goal

Raised by 11 people in 8 months
Angel Rios Cruz is/was one of our long suffering comrades in the 338th and one of the best men I've ever worked with.  The hurricane in Puerto Rico has devastated the area he lives in.  Rios' family is safe and he has access to food and water, but needs a generator for refrigeration and to keep the lights on (it may be a month or more before power is restored to just 10% of the island).

Primary goal: To cover the cost of shipping to PR, which is based on weight/dimensions of a 3500 watt gas generator, 105 lb shipping weight.  Cost estimate per UPS: $465.45 on 7 day shipping (Amazon does not ship this freight size directly to PR, which is where we come in).

Secondary goal: Offset some or all of the cost of a new Champion 3500 watt gas generator found on Amazon ($369.99, link below).   It's highly rated, appears to be a very good deal, and should reliably provide what Rios and his family will need until such time as power can be restored.


Rios did not ask for help, but let's take care of our own and help out Rios and his familia. He'd do it for us, let's do it for him.  Thanks!!

UPDATE: Mission successful! Project Generator was completed in 10 days from inception to deliverable: We rallied, opened this gofundme, met/exceeded money goal, added a lot of additional items with the extra money (pictured), and had the whole of it shipped and in Rios' hands in 8 business days.

Today the Cruz family has access to power, light, and refrigeration because you cared about one of us. It may seem like a small thing in the face of the devastation and challenges that Puerto Rico is suffering through, but it means something to Rios and his family, and it means something to us.

Thank you for your support!! It was great to watch this unfold, and we'll look forward to the next time we can rally around one of our peers.
