We spent one week visiting families in 11 different cities across the island and created relationships with several nursing homes, and local relief centers/non-profits. The goal was to create a network of individuals and organizations who we could partner with to provide aide in a more efficient manner during the second phase of our project.
All of the funds donated will go to providing aide to the people of Puerto Rico. FSNNY will be sponsoring the transportation cost which allows for us to use 100% of the proceeds for the people of Puerto Rico!
Our goal on the first trip was to raise $3000 and we accomplished it thanks to the support of so many people who heard about our campaign.
This time we want to raise $10,000!!!
We are looking to provide relief for the families who were located in areas difficult to reach. We realized on our first trip that some people had water and lights, but there were so many who did not. Not to mention the others who were too far to get anything (including government aide). We want to provide aide to those that can't be reached conventionally.
Our Phase 2 trip will be set for June and late August. We thank you in advance for helping us give back to Puerto Rico and will keep you posted on our mission as we continue to prepare!
Puerto Rico Se Levanta!
