Spotlight: Unite for Puerto Rico

22008347_1465388810221135_7948524401129256455_nRecently, Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, leaving the whole island without access to power, water, food, and bare necessities. Many people weren’t able to communicate with their family for days. As you may or may not know, my husband is from Puerto Rico and we got married there as well. Puerto Rico has become my second home. Seeing the devastation and hearing stories from our friends and families is heartbreaking. You can help!

Puerto Rico Rises, a community organization run by volunteers has set up a easy process for you to contribute.21765222_10156587380254256_7125848071879483763_nIf you are in Houston, you can email puertorriquenos.houston@gmail.com for specific drop off locations and needs.
