The local churches of Puerto Rico have been active in many aspects of the rebuilding: from providing meals to communities, solar luci lights to those with sporadic electricity, the elderly, rebuilding alongside other teams and organizing long term preparedness for future disasters.
They need your help with a special need: appliances for those who lost everything and don’t have resources to replace them.
First Congo set up the Puerto Rico Special Resources Fund. Every donation will be matched by Mission and Service Claire Gehin fund up to $ 5,000.
We have a team traveling to Puerto Rico in March to rebuild homes and they will take your donations/matching funds with them to be dispersed by the disaster coordinating team there.
No funds will be used by the volunteers. Checks can be made out to First Congregational (FCUCC) with Puerto Rico fund in the memo. Thank you!
