Skål Puerto Rico Children's Fund

$3,175 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 5 months
For many years, Skal International Puerto Rico, a non-profit organization of tourism and travel professionals,  has helped its community through fundraisers to support hospitality students and a selected children's home or hospital. In 2017, in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Maria, we were unable to organize an event. Indeed, the generosity of Skal USA clubs and its members through a GoFundMe campaign helped keep the club operating.

Thanks to the Jacksonville, Philadelphia and Atlantic City clubs, we were able to present toys to the children at San Jorge Children Hospital in 2018. This year we would like to help repair and maintain a small home for children, El Hogar el Pequeño Joshua. We are asking for help from fellow Skalleagues and our friends through this campaign. 

The campaign will run until March 15, 2019. Contributions from this campaign are held in a special account by the treasurer of Skal Puerto Rico. A check for the total amount raised will be presented to the Hogar in the name of Skal and its generous supporters. As we did last year, a final report will be submitted to the Skal USA and Skal International publications.

This has been a year of many natural disasters in the USA and we know our clubs have responded to the needs closer to home. But if you can help us with this project in Puerto Rico with a contribution or by sharing this message with your friends, your support will be truly appreciated.
