Help Re-Build After Hurricane Maria

Hello,

My name is Louis Carril and I live and work in Puerto Rico. I am the owner of CCS Security Solution Inc.

A small business that services security systems in the island with a staff of about 15 people.

When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, ‘everything collapsed simultaneously’

Hurricane Maria whipped Puerto Rico with Irma-level winds, drenched the island with Harvey-level flooding, crippled communications, decimated buildings and damaged a dam that puts downstream residents at risk of catastrophe. But help has been slow to come to communities where the devastation is described as "apocalyptic,"

We have staff and technicians that will be temporarily without the normal income to support their families and in some cases, they are the only provider just like many hundreds of thousand in the island. Many Puerto Ricans have lost a loved one and have had property damage and losses. But in this one case close to home, one of my technician and very close friend, lost the life of a brother.

Many have had family members that have also received damages or lost their entire homes.  Over 3 million people on the island that have lost the same and more. We can’t forget the animals and domestic pets being rescued and in need of food and shelter. The increase in fuel cost, water, food, power plants and necessities are getting higher and higher.

We just want to help get Puerto Rico back on its feet. This is a beautiful Island and it needs our help. The amount needed cannot be measured, so any little bit will help. This being an Island, it’s very hard to get things mailed or shipped here now, so purchasing goods to rebuild as well as fuel, water, food, etc... would be faster getting it locally even if the cost is much higher. 

This money will help keep CCS afloat and help provide assistance to my Staff and Techs. and provide help to those in need and to many domestic pets out on the streets in need of medical attention, shelter and a home. The work has come to a stand still but all the overhead and expeses continiue.
I need to make sure I can provide work for my staff and techs when all starts to get back to normal or some kind of normal. I need to provide jobs for them and help anyone else I can in this beautiful Island (PUERTO RICO).

Please help.
 
Thank you for your support.
