Puerto Rico Disaster Relief from Hurricanes Irma & Maria

Hurricane Maria landed in Puerto Rico Wednesday morning just a few days after Hurricane Irma and had devastating effects on the island. In this special issue of the Centro Voices e-magazine will focus on:

  •       In the News

  •       Relief Events

  •       Where to Donate

Puerto Rican community leaders and elected officials in the diaspora are calling for a renewed effort to assist Puerto Rico with disaster relief and recovery from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Many families have lost their homes and need assistance with basic needs.  

In this report we include a list of local events to support Puerto Rico’s disaster relief from hurricanes Irma and Maria and a survey of charities and local initiatives with direct access to the victims of these hurricanes where you can make donations directly. You can help by donating directly to charities in Puerto Rico that are leading the effort to mitigate the unfolding humanitarian crisis, or by attending events and other local initiatives where you can bring monetary or other types of assistance.

As you can see from the listing included in this newsletter, there are plenty of options to get involved. The important thing is to respond to the call to action from our leadership and organizations. Click here to read more...
