Hurricane Maria Relief

Although it's been over 6 weeks since the hurricane, many towns in PR are still without electricity and running water. My parents live in Comerio, one of the worst places affected by the hurricane. I was blessed to have the opportunity to go to Puerto Rico and help my parents for one week. Their house survived, but their mattress was destroyed, along with the coops for their live stock (chickens, ducks, turkeys, & rabbits) and all of their fruit/vegetable trees. Not long after I returned home, we received an unsolicited very generous donation from my wife, Daphne's Aunt and Uncle. I called my mom to see how to handle this donation. Our thoughts are to help the community by identifying families and putting together food packages to be delivered. My parents are selfless. I know they turned down free food because they wanted those that needed it the most to not miss out. I am asking for some help as it pertains to my parents and their community. Any little bit helps. Many thanks!
