What will the money be raised for, and who will be giving our items out in Puerto Rico?
Donations that will be raised through GoFundMe will be used to purchase items that the Chabad Of Puerto Rico will be giving to those in need in Puerto Rico. Rabbi Mendel Zarci has been dedicated since Hurricane Maria has hit, going town to town with volunteers handing out items to everyone they see. Here is their facebook page, please take a look at the link to see pictures/videos of the amazing things this organization is doing.
Chabad Of Puerto Rico
How will we be getting the items down to Puerto Rico and who will be paying for that?
The Chabad Of Puerto Rico has a sponsor that will cover all costs of shipping. Items will be shipped by a carrier and it will take 1 week for them to recieve our goods.
How long will we be doing the drive?
Our target date is the Sunday of Thanksgiving week, November 26.
We need the funds as soon as we can to purchase these items, every Thursday we will be going to wholesalers and using all funds and keeping them in our Storage Unit.
Is there any other way we can help?
Yes, we need volunteers to help organize and gather goods through their resources as well. We will have drop off dates at the location that you can come and drop off yourself.
