Hurricane Relief : PR

Congrats Friends! Including unseen Paypal donations, we have more than achieved our goal! THANK YOU!

Time to get to go to work with those generous donations of yours as promised. Below you will find the itemized list of supplies being sent to support the municipalities of San Juan, Luquillo, Guayama and Caguas by being sent to 4 individuals that I have been in constant contact with in the days leading up to and following the hurricane. The array reflects the feedback I have recieved directly from them. Once in PR at these locations, I relinquish control of their contents to the individuals listed and trust them to handle local equitable dispersal. All of these locations meet criteria based on need, unique ability and confirmed contact/ability to receive packages. Afterward, I will be using leftover funds to assemble a packable support package to travel with me (travel having been funded by means outside of this campaign) as I spend time on the island doing hands on support. Details regarding this will follow soon and the final array will include items that reflect the most up to date needs as the situation evolves.
