Caribbean Hurricane Relief

This Caribbean Hurricane Relief Effort is sponsored by Caribbean Sea Fest and Taste of the Caribbean to raise money for victims of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.  These islands are devasted. Infrastructures are decimated. Electricity may be out for months. Schools are closed, destroyed, or completely gone. Proceeds will go to on-the-ground relief efforts for the following Caribbean Islands hit the hardest by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria:

Puerto Rico 
St Maarten 
Virgin Islands

I, Sharon Cronin, will download the Go Fund Me donations that have been collected and together with what we received at our fundraiser, I take responsibility to ensure that the money will be divided between these seven islands most impacted. We worked hard to identify on-the-ground volunteers and community groups where ever possible.

Barbuda: Antigua and Barbuda Rotary Club
Haiti: Seattle based volunteer working with Sustainable Haiti will ensure funds get to northern Haiti communities effected by recent Hurricanes
Puerto Rico: On the Ground Relief Volunteers (with ties to Seattle) in Santurce, Loíza, and Mayagüez. The Santurce volunteers are working with this organization:
Virgin Islands:
St Maarten: Seattle Based volunteer working with children and families at this site
