Support Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is reeling in the wake of Hurricane Maria. The island is largely without power and ways to communicate.
At this time, Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rosselló is advising individuals to donate to organizations on the ground in Puerto Rico. Here are few major organizations I've heard:
- Unidos Por Puerto Rico: founded by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló, this is the main organizations coordinating relief efforts
- ConPRMetidos: Another nonprofit in PR working to help victims
- Alliance for Puerto Rico: This has been established by community activists in Boston with a goal of raising $1 million towards relief efforts. It was recently announced, so I will share a link once the account is set up
While it is noble to donate items, there is limited capacity to distribute the items to people across the island. There are reports of items being delivered, but no truck drivers available to deliver them. For the reason, the push is to donate financial resources.
