Help for San Sebastian, PR

Mike & I have started an initiative to help those affected by Hurricane Maria, in Mike's native town, San Sebatian "El Pepino", Puerto Rico.  He was born and raised in this small town but the people are amazing and resiliant! Their spirit is genuine and with our help, they will rise from this devastation.

His town has been devastated with this catastrophic hurricane and we are uniting forces with all of you so that together we can uplift this beautiful small town.  We will also be collecting donations in College Point, New York shortly to ship to PR.  More information to follow on where to donate items.  In the meantime, for those of you far or near, we ask that you open your hearts and help us purchase much needed items such as water, food, medical supplies, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, batteries, towels, diapers, formula and so many things that our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico are in need of.  

All proceeds collected will go directly to those affected in San Sebastian, Guayanilla & Penuelas.  We have the support of the Mayor of San Sebastian, Mr. Javier Jimenez who will ensure that the container will arrive to our loved ones.  This container and its transporter is already in the works so that we can purchase items and much needed articles that many families will need to survive in the coming days and weeks.  

We humbly thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and may God Bless you and your families.

Respectfully yours,
The Vargas Family
