Relief NOW For Puerto Rico

I am Ryan Fitzmorris and I am from New Orleans, LA.  I grew up in a subdivision of New Orleans called Lakeview, one of the hardest hit areas of city during Hurricance Katrina. 

We are operating as the non-profit Relief NOW with our delivery fleet The Irish Armada.

  Puerto Rico, Southeast Texas and South Florida have gone through many of the similar experiences as I did 12 years ago.  I have friends and family who live in both regions and we want to bring supplies directly to not only them but all in need.  With boots on the ground, we like many others feel more confident that our donations are going to good use when we see them being used directly.

We have now achieved three successful runs with your help to St Joseph's Catholic Church in Port Arthur, Texas and Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockport, TX and St Catherine's Catholic Church in Sebring, FL.  In those trips we have cooked and prepared food for over 10,000 people and delivered supplies.

  We would like to continue this message of hope in conjunction with others, because there is so much more to do, but it can only be done together.

We have just completed our 4th mission to Puerto Rico!!!!  We had multiple issues and only received 2 of the 3 containers while my group of volunteers were in Puerto Rico.  The 3rd container of supplies has arrived and we have entrusted its distribution with our friend Ginny Pinero.  Ginny has a monumental task which she is more than capable of distributing 30,000 meals of red beans and rice, french bread, and coca colas.  

We still have many invoices left to pay and we need to ensure that she has the proper funding to distribute this in a timely manner.

Thank you and God Bless!!!
