Puerto Rico Relief Fund

Dear Family and Friends,

The beautiful island that our family and friends call home has been completely devastated. Please help us in raising funds to provide aid and supplies to the families of Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

While our government officials are working to address the large-scale devastations, the island is facing due to the Hurricane, it’s clear their efforts are under resourced and more needs to be done to assist the people in the local communities.

 On October 30th, there will be a group of 11 volunteers traveling from the tri-state area with various cultural and business backgrounds to provide supplemental relief aid to the people of Puerto Rico.

They will be in Puerto Rico for one week working hard in this effort.  Volunteer members traveling may be familiar to you such as Lillian Negron, Miriam Soto, Ben Lorenzo and off duty NYPD officers.  Our goal is not only to provide aid to this mission but also provide a platform where people donating feel comfortable that the funds being donated are going to the right place by and in trusted hands.

We are asking you to please help us make a difference by donating to this important cause.   To make a donation, please click on this link https://www.gofundme.com/ProjectCoqui
Your donations will go towards local purchases and distribution of food, water and supplies. 

*Please note:  All volunteers are paying their own travel, food and transportation while on the island.  All monies raised will directly go towards relief aid.

Thank you in advance for your support and contribution.

Sincerely,
Project Coqui Team
