It will be months before the island has electricity, and this facility is impacted as the current generator will need replacement shortly.  There is also no water at this time.  Perfect recipe for disaster.

If you have supplies, you can also help.  We are in need of the following items, but feel free to add if I have left anything out:

Generator, gloves (small, medium, large and x-large), adult diapers, rubbing alcohol, alchohol wipes, hand sanitizers, water, non-perishable food, candles, wipes, batteries (AA, C, and D), flashlights, battery operated lights, towels, face, masks, sheets for twin size hospital beds, bed pads, clothing, glucometers, test strips, aspirin, cotton, garbage bags, and anything else you see of value for a nursing home.

Rest assure that your donation will be 100% allocated to this not for profit and there is no administrative overhead associated with donations received.

R.A.I.N. Puerto Rico will assist with relief efforts. Donations will be shipped there.  If you want to ship directly, once UPS and Fed EX service is restored, you can mail it to:  HOGAR CATALEYA, INC. Barrio Cuevas, KM 0, OC 2 Penuelas, Puerto Rico 00624 to the attention of:  Ms. Ilaine Rodriguez, Administrator.  Business Number is: [phone redacted], and cell number is [phone redacted], but phones are down at this time and the island is without electricity.

On behalf of the Senior Residents of Hogar Cataleya,

God bless you
