Humanitarian aid is arriving but there are a lack of truck drivers and fuel to deliver food, water, and other essentials to the residents that have been impacted. With limited cell service, communication is limited between residents and family members trying to ensure the health and safety of their loved ones.
Yasshira Lopez, a close member of our team, has over 30 family members struggling at the moment in Puerto Rick. It's been heartbreaking to speak with Yasshira about the challenges she and her family are facing and to imagine myself in her situation. To make matters harder, her father has a caretaker and is very ill. Yasshira's family would like to fly him back to the US where he can receive proper care in Chicago.
Since getting supplies into Puerto Rico has become challenging, we have decided that a financial donation of some sort to support Yasshira's family would be more effective.
Please, if you can spare anything to contribute to this cause and to assist Yasshira's family in their time of need, I would greatly appreciate it. If you cannot contribute electronically through this method, cash is being accepted by either Vicki Znavor or Patti Watters.
Thank you and please keep Yasshira and her family in your thoughts.
