South Florida For Puerto Rico

Hi South Florida, I am Sean Dunn and I am creating this go fund me to benefit those in desperate need in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma and Maria. 100% of this fund will go to the Food Bank of Puerto Rico.  To get things started, our company J.R. Dunn Jewelers will match the first $10,000 this fund raises. This cause is near and dear to my heart as my wife’s family and many of our friends live on the island.  Thankfully they are ok but there are so many people in Puerto Rico who are less fortunate. This hurricane season has been tough on our entire country, but it’s been especially tough on Puerto Rico. There are many stories of people drinking water from creeks and leaking pipes contaminated with raw sewage, living without food for multiple days, and about 80 percent of the agriculture being completely destroyed. In these conditions, more than 400,000 people have fallen ill and almost 70 have died.

 



The Food Bank of Puerto Rico, or ‘Banco de Alimentos Puerto Rico’, was founded in 1988 and is now part of the largest organization in the United States in the fight against hunger, Feeding America a highly accredited charity. Each year, The Food Bank of Puerto Rico distributes over 7 million meals to people struggling with hunger. They have been instrumental in the effort to rebuild Puerto Rico following the extreme devastation brought to the island as a result of Hurricane Irma and Maria. Let’s unite and together we can rebuild the Puerto Rican community.

So how does it work?

100% of the money donated through this page will go straight to The Food Bank of Puerto Rico, without touching any our hands. The money raised will be directly used to provide food and basic necessities for all of those affected, in an effort to rebuild and re-strengthen the community of Puerto Rico.
