Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico

As you are aware, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico very hard and left many of our friends and families without many of their basic needs. Currently 100% of the island’s population (3.3 million) is without power, everyone that has electricity is because they are running on their own generators, a luxury that most of the population cannot afford. The government estimates that there will be people without power for more than 5 months. I have taken the liberty of putting a container together to send a full scale care package to Puerto Rico with some of the necessary materials to help in these dire times. Please see a list of the items below and if you have anything you can help with please let me know and I will get back to you to make sure it gets to the right place! I know it’s a lot to ask being that we ourselves are still trying to get back up with Hurricane Irma but I will be forever in your debt if you’re able to help our beautiful Island.

Items needed:

• Batteries (any type)
• Flashlights
• Gas Stoves or Grilles
• Gas Tanks (small and big)
• Gas Saws
• Battery Powered Fans
• 55gal Empty Cans
• Generators (Gas or Diesel)
• Wood Panels (1/2” or ¾”)
• 2x4’s, 4x4’s (8ft or 10ft)
• WATER Gallons and bottles
• NON-Perishable Food

As you see from the list above these are items that are easy to get, if you have difficulty or want to help, we will also welcome a Home Depot cards or GoFundMe deposits and I’ll make sure to spend it in the items listed above and provide you with the receipts and proof of purchase. We are hoping to ship by this weekend so time is of the upmost importance.

Please take a picture when you drop off the items.
