360Works Hurricane Maria Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands
Hurricane Maria left immense devastation on Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
It is now one week since the hurricane hit the islands, and millions are still without power, fuel, and clean water. Communication is non-existent in many areas as cell service has been interrupted with cell towers down. Food is becoming scarce. CNN reported that in the town of Utuado, Lydia Rivera has started to ration crackers and drink rainwater to keep her two grandchildren alive. "No water, no food," Rivera told CNN. People with medical conditions are at risk of death, as diesel supplies diminish and limit the power supply for generators powering hospitals and home breathing equipment.
The American Red Cross has had their employees and volunteers on the ground in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands since before Hurricane Irma made landfall a few weeks prior. They are continuing to expand their relief efforts by shipping satellite phones and other technology supplies to help with the interrupted cell service and bringing relief supplies such as water, ready-to-eat food, cleanup kits, home repair kits, insect repellent, and more.
At 360Works, we believe we can work with our customers to make a difference.
For all funds received up until Friday, September 29th, 11:59 pm Eastern Time, 360Works will match the total amount of donations up to $5,000. Thank you for your support over the years, and for working with us to help those in need.
