Colon Family Hurricane Maria Fund

Being so far away from our family in Puerto Rico during this historic situation has been one of the most strenuous times for our family but we are remaining strong during this trying time. We spent a week with no communication from our loved ones, and were left unsure of their situation. Were they safe? Did they have any supplies? Would they be able to call us anytime soon with any news?

Thankfully my sister was able to get to an area where she was able to call us after a long week of waiting and let us know they were safe, but their homes were not. They are left with limited to no supplies, and severely damaged homes, that will need to be completely rebuilt in the coming months as the entire island tries to recover from this devastation.

Travel to and from the island is near impossible at this time, and it pains me that I cannot be with my family down there to help them rebuild and recover from all of their losses.

I want to help my family in anyway I can, and while I cannot be there right now to help due to the inability to travel there, I would love to be able to financially help rebuild and replace everything they have lost.

All funds raised in this campaign will go directly to the Colon family, neighbors, and friends

so that they may rebuild and thrive again on the beautiful Island of Enchantment we know as our home, Puerto Rico.
