Our hearts are with the residents of Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Florida as they face a long recovery after the most recent catastrophic natural disasters.

Five years after the devastating landfall of Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Fiona has caused widespread flooding and power outages in Puerto Rico. More recently, Hurricane Ian is disrupting more lives in neighboring Caribbean islands and Florida.

To support the disaster recovery, please consider donating to one or more of the following organizations that are coordinating relief efforts.
