CityWideReach: PR Relief Festival

On Wednesday, September 20th, Hurricane Maria made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, bisecting the entire island and drenching it with several feet of rain. What's happened since has been disastrous. Massive flooding and powerful Category 4 winds have ruined homes and destroyed critical infrastructures like power and medical facilities. Resources such as food, water, shelter, feminine products, diapers, and medicine are scarce. The people of Puerto Rico are in a dire situation and they need our help. Fortunately, there is a solution that can be achieved through the combined efforts of caring communities.

With a focus on providing relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies and long-term recovery assistance, CityWideReach, a collective of the Brooklyn-Based creative groups, 24Production, ONEpublic, and Voodoo Lounge Underground, have organized a Hurricane Relief Festival to assist the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

This festival is about giving back and setting an example of what can be achieved when Brooklyn creatives come together for a greater cause. This is a night of art, music, and live performance to raise money for hurricane relief efforts and spread a message of peace, positivity, and the power of community. On October 6th, we come together in solidarity to encourage the continued recovery for our friends and families in Puerto Rico.

All proceeds will go towards hurricane relief for the people of Puerto Rico through Global Giving's Puerto Rico & Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/hurricane-maria-caribbean-relief-fund/

A portion of the donations will also go towards the purchase of essential supplies such as Baby Food, Diapers, Feminine Hygiene Products, Batteries, and First-Aid Kits to be donated to:

Engine 277 / Ladder 112 (Bushwick)
582 Knickerbocker Avenue
Cross Streets: Gates Avenue and Palmetto Street

With the combined efforts of family and friends, we will aid Puerto Rico in gaining access to the tools and support needed for the long road to recovery, one donation at a time.

Puerto Rico may be on an island of their own but they will not be forgotten!
