Operation Puerto Rico Gift-Lift

51 days after Hurricane Maria hit, the people of Puerto Rico continue to remain mostly without... without power, without fresh water, and  without adequate relief assistance.  A full blown humanitarian crisis has largely been ignored. This continues to floor us and tug at our heartstrings.

Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift provided over $225,000 in relief supplies, over 15 flights and evacuated 500 people from the Northwest part of the island, due to the support of people like you and the amazing partnership with Spirit Airlines. 

With the holidays approaching, imagine having gone through this horrible devastation and now not being able to provide holiday gifts for your children and family. Imagine how the children will feel who have lost so much, receiving very little in the way of holiday cheer. Together with you, Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift is going to change that and make a difference once again.

In partnership with Spirit Airlines, we launch OPERATION PUERTO RICO HOLIDAY GIFT-LIFT

We will be raising funds to purchase gifts, toys, books and holiday items for the people of Puerto Rico. We will also be throwing a children's holiday party in Aguadilla.

Time is of the essence,  we have our first flight in about 10 days for a total of 3 through early December . We have at least 30,000 pounds available to us on the planes, so it’s GO time for a good cause.

You stepped up before. We hate to ask after so much generosity, but we need you once again.

Our goal is to spread some holiday cheer to an island of people that deserve and need it.
