Hurrican Relief for Polanco Family

Friends and Family,

As a native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and a Boston resident, I am reaching out in a time of need due to the disaster of Hurricane Maria.

As many of you may know, my family & neighbors were deeply impacted by this tragedy and my heart is truly broken since we are limited to what we can do from afar.  This country has given me so much opportunity since we were brought here 52 years ago and it is in my own will to give back to them in order to get through hard times.

This is not just about my family, this is a humanitarian issue that I can not leave unaddressed and I deeply would appreciate your help and support to raise funds to help them start over again. I am looking to raise $5,000 as soon as possible to purchase a 2 generators and  supplies. The remainder of any funds will be given to them for personal use since they will be need it for the next upcoming months. 

I kindly thank all of you for your generosity and support.

peace and love,

Milagros (Millie)
