Hurricane Maria relief

I made three small donations for Hurricane Harvey relief in Houston, in August and September. Houston is on the mend, although it will be a long and expensive road. The tragedy taking place in Puerto Rico, however, is still unfolding over a week after Hurricane Maria left an “apocalyptic” scene. There is still no power and no infrastructure across the entire island. “Sometimes we don’t know what’s going to happen until the storm actually hits,” said Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, who has been sent to Puerto Rico as a liaison for the military’s contribution to rebuilding. “And this is the worst I’ve ever seen.”

Today, I made a donation to the Massachusetts United for Puerto Rico fund, organized by the State of Massachusetts and the Boston Foundation. “The money gathered will be distributed for relief and reconstruction of the island of Puerto Rico and to respond to the substantial migration of Puerto Ricans who will arrive in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth in the months ahead.”
