Puerto Rico Hurricane relief

Hurricane Maria  plowed over the island of Puerto Rico in late september.  The situation is very dire for many people living on the island in terms of power and water and communication. I have been in Puerto Rico for a month supporting recovery efforts and have come to be friends with a woman whose family lives in the mountains near the El Yunque National Park in Las Piedras. Her family has a generator which can provide limited power for part of the day at great expense.  They can use help in purchasing gas to run the generator in the short term and purchasing a higher capacity generator for long term power supply as well as an option in the case of future storms. The goal of this effort is to assist in the cost of gas, which is on the order of twenty dollars per day.  Anything will help, and of course the more the better.  The Klines have a traditoin of support hurricane and other storm relief in the form of KlineGrass as some of you may remember.  I will have the opportunity to  spend Thanksgiving with her family as they show their hospitality to a visitor. I would like to return the favor by leveraging the network of friends and family that I have.

Thanks for your help in what I determine to be a very worthy cause.
