ESMV Cares- Puerto Rico Relief Fund

$2,632 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 3 months
Hello friends and family,

The hurricane in Puerto Rico was a personal tragedy for many of us who work at Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley.  Our connections to the island run deep as family and friends and communities we love were devastated by the storm.  We also work with consumers, their families and other staff members who are worried about loved ones who live on the island.  The stories are heartbreaking and all share the same desperate themes:  no communication, no way to get out, no clean water, no electricity, no food, no money, no supplies and slow relief.   

Many of us are involved in relief efforts already established by churches or other organizations.  And yet that never feels enough….there is a personal nature to this tragedy that calls us to action. AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.

We want to raise $10,000 in the next 10 months.  If we can get a 1,000 people to send $10 each we will meet our goal.  This money will be sent to the Ricky Martin Foundation whose team is on the ground, already working with the local government, local volunteers and the First Lady of Puerto Rico to provide urgently needed food, water, clothing and medical supplies. We will also be supporting efforts of Manna Worldwide to supply the water filtration systems to Puerto Rico.

We welcome larger donations, but want to ask for support that is within reason for most of us who are handling lots of other expenses as well.  $10 a person seems doable. 

Along with sending in your $10 dollars we need your help in spreading the word.  The more people we can reach, the more successful we can become.  Please please please….send this message to other friends and family members and help us get the word out.

Elder Services is a private, non-profit, charitable organization – 501 (3) (c) - Tax Exempt ID: 042-545-136. For income tax purposes, your gift is considered a charitable donation and tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. 

We appreciate anything you can do to help us.

Thank you,
Staff at Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley
