San Diego For Puerto Rico putting on Fiesta 4 Relief Fundraiser
Emil Morales with San Diego For Puerto Rico came to the studio Monday to talk about the organization’s fundraising efforts and grassroots origins.
San Diego For Puerto Rico (SD4PR is a grass roots team of committed individuals who have united to provide direct assistance to those affected in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria. Their mission is to work with the larger San Diego community to identify and provide critically needed supplies and assistance to families in Puerto Rico. They seek to supplement and not displace efforts underway via the government and other agencies. They communicate directly with family and colleagues on the island to listen to their needs and determine items most urgently needed to ease their day to day struggle to survive.
SD4PR is a small grass roots initiative founded post Hurricane Maria. As a team, they have collected and shipped supplies, participated in smaller fundraisers, conducted an adopt-a -family initiative during the holidays, and are now sponsoring a larger fundraising event entitled: Fiesta4Relief.
