Puerto Rico recovery

Hurricane Maria was a year and a half ago. It was the deadliest Atlantic hurricane in 15 years. Much of Puerto Rico is still trying to recover. We’re on vacation this week and chose to come to Puerto Rico specifically to direct our tourist dollars where they’ll do some good, too. To be sure, this isn’t a service trip. But we’ll try to do so simple things to support local businesses. Like the barber shop I visited in San Juan today, instead of getting my hair cut back in Somerville before I got on a plane. Today, I also made a donation to a Hurricane Relief fund operated by All Hearts and Hands, which arranges service trips for people to help with recovery.
