Manny Quintero Helping Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria caused widespread destruction on the island of Puerto Rico. Many still lack access to electricity, clean water, and clothing. Manny Quintero and his wife, Ivy, live in Puerto Rico. Manny is a Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) technician and that’s how I became acquainted with him. This story isn’t about Manny or me. It’s about the unincorporated territory of the United States called Puerto Rico, and its people.

In Manny’s words, “A lot of people still aren’t able to get out of their communities due to collapsed bridges and damaged roads. Yesterday, I went to various communities where the river flooded everything and people lost everything. Here is what’s needed the most and in order of priority:
·       Pampers
·       Water
·       Baby food
·       Canned Goods
·       Any food in bags like rice, chips, cookies, etc.
·       Kids clothing from newborn to youth for boys and girls
·       Adult clothing for men and women
·       Shoes
Clothing is needed but most importantly send anything that won’t get damaged due to the fact we still don’t have power or water.”

Funds raised in this campaign will be used to buy the necessary items Manny listed above. As soon as the funds start coming in, I will purchase the items and ship them to him ASAP. If Amazon ships there I will buy from them and have everything shipped directly to Puerto Rico. This campaign could not have happened without the help of Manny and Ivy. They are the ones distributing everything once they receive them.

When I heard about the devastation in Puerto Rico I wanted to help but didn't know how. I'm over 2,000 miles away! Then I saw Manny's post on Facebook and it was like a door opened by God for me to step through, and I did. I’m just a vessel that is being used by God. Isaiah 6:8 says; Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I.  Send me!”

I am so thankful that gofundme gives me an opportunity to help others. Friends helping friends!
