HURRICANE MARIA RELIEF UPDATE: NEW YORK STANDS WITH PUERTO RICO

Let me preface this post by saying, I have recieved hundreds if not thousands of inquiries about alternative relief efforts that address relief not covered by orgs like FEMA, Red Cross and NYS Relief Efforts. At this time, with most of the country incomunicado, there is not much information on that front yet. I will communicate any updates as they become available.

I am engaged with the Governor’s office, other elected officials,  as well the Puerto Rican Family Institute, Acacia Network and other local grassroots orgs in finding solutions to the distribution roadblocks.

If you need to reach me… George@SofritoMediaGroup.com

In the interim, I am asking that we provide as much support to this initiative to make sure relief is flowing to the island.

Thank you.

George Torres

Following his visit to Puerto Rico to deliver emergency supplies and see firsthand the widespread damage and devastation from Hurricane Maria, Governor Cuomo launched the Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico.

The effort brings together a wide range of civic, business and industry partners to provide needed services, goods and funds to help the people of Puerto Rico recover and rebuild, and provides opportunities for New Yorkers to contribute to the relief efforts.
