Bring the Jacksons Home

Our friends, Sharon and Bobby Jackson, were celebrating their 20th anniversary in Puerto Rico when Hurricane Maria hit the island. Maria left Puerto Rico in severe devastation demolishing homes, knocking out electricity and leaving the Jacksons stranded. 

Local airports have been ordered closed because of flooding and debris which have left the Jacksons stranded at their hotel in San Juan. Their flights have been rescheduled several times with the ever-changing departure now at Monday, October 9. 

Sharon and Bobby have given updates when possible. They are currently safe, but the situation is becoming increasingly dire as resources such as food, fuel, and access to clean water are running low.

The costs of their extended stay at the hotel, food and water and other expenses are piling up. We are also hoping to book them on a sooner flight home as one becomes available. 

Please consider giving to this fund to assist in the unexpected costs Sharon and Bobby have incurred  in Puerto Rico and hopefully get them home soon!

**Funds raised will be given to the Jacksons to offset these costs and if needed used to book new flights to get them home sooner than their new departure date of October 9.  

**This fund has been setup by friends and coworkers of Sharon Jackson from Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System
