FAMILIA PADILLA HURRICANE FUND

 MY NAME IS BLANCA PADILLA FROM SAINT PETERSBURG FLORIDA AND I AM HELPING TO RAISE FUNDS FOR MY FAMILY IN PUERTO RICO SPECIFICALLY MY GRANDFATHER, COUSINS, AUNTS AND UNCLES IN CUPEY ALTO.

AS WE ALL KNOW HURRICANE MARIA HAS DEVASTATED PUERTO RICO. I AM RAISING MONEY TO SEND MY FAMILY EMERGENCY SUPPLIES.


SOME OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES IN THERE ENTIRETY AS WELL AS THEIR LIVELIHOOD. MY FAMILY HAS DEPENDED ON THEIR FARM LANDS FOR GENERATIONS AND NOW EVERYTHING IS GONE. NOT A SALVAGEABLE CROP IN SIGHT.  THE LITTLE PINK FARM HOUSE AND CROPS IN THE PHOTO ARE NO LONGER THERE.

EVERYONE HAS LOST POWER, WATER AND HAVE SCARCE FOOD SUPPLIES DUE TO HURRICANE IRMA.  IT IS EXPECTED TO BE MONTHS BEFORE THEY HAVE THESE COMODOTIES AGAIN.

MY GRANDFATHER IS DEPENDENT ON OXYGEN AND OUR BIGGEST CONCERN IS GETTING HIM A GENERATOR ASAP.

YOUR DONATION WILL GO TOWARDS THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:

NON-PERISHABLE FOOD (MRE'S, DRIED & CANNED GOODS, SUPPLEMENTS SUCH AS ENSURE, PROTEINS BARS, ETC)
WATER
GENERATORS
INVERTERS
BATTERIES
FLASHLIGHTS
LANTERNS
A SMALL ICE MAKER OR REFRIGERATOR FOR MEDICATIONS
TOOLS

SHIPPING COST
ETC
ETC
ETC

I PLAN ON MAKING A PERSONAL TRIP TO DELIVER GOODS BUT I WILL ALSO SHIP VIA AIR AND SEA.


I HOPE TO RECEIVE ENOUGH FUNDS TO EVENTUALLY HELP THEM REBUILD.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO KEEP THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS, WE CANNOT PUT A PRICE ON THE BLESSINGS AND SMALL MIRACLES THAT ONLY GOD CAN PROVIDE.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR DONATION, SUPPORT AND LOVE.
