Rivera Colon Hurricane Relief

As many of you know Puerto Rico was recently hit by 2 Hurricanes, Irma and Maria, and the devastation has been tremendous. Many people on the island have not had power since September 7th. The Jones Act was temporarily lifted this morning (9/28/17)  by President Trump finally allowing direct foreign delivery of supplies into Puerto Rico's ports. We have made contact with our family on the island just yesterday.

 I am trying to collect funds for my father's family in his hometown of Utuado. Our family is lucky and no one has been injured however they struggle with no running water, a scarce amount of food and some must drive roughly 20-30 minutes to get gas to keep their generators running while others must exit their homes by boat. Some roads have been washed away as well making it difficult to get necessary supplies. If you can find it in your heart to donate even a few dollars we would greatly appreciate it. We will disperse the funds to other affected families as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  

 Sincerely,

Beatrice Rivera and the entire Rivera Colon Family
