The recent hurricane activity in the Atlantic has wreaked havoc in Texas, Florida, and most recently Puerto Rico. These disasters have displaced families, and left millions without power, clean water, and food. We are proud to announce that our fundholders came together to grant over $58,750 to relief efforts following Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey. Below you will find ways to donate to the grassroots, on the ground relief efforts currently underway in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.
Hurricane Maria Relief
Hurricane Maria, the category 5 storm that destroyed Puerto Rico in late September with extremely damaging winds and an unprecedented storm surge, has left the U.S. territory in need of our help. It has been reported that the island will not have power for up to six months, leaving millions without homes, refrigeration, and infrastructure to access clean water and food.
We encourage our fundholders who may feel so inclined to donate (through the fund that they manage) using DonorCentral to Hispanics in Philanthropy’s HIPGive Hurricane Relief Fund, or to the Hispanic Federation’s UNIDOS Disaster Relief Fund, using the notation – for Hurricane Maria Relief – to earmark the grant from the fund.
