Puerto Rico Hurricane Donations


Get a free drink at Salsa MS Dance studio on Saturday Sep 30 2017 from 10pm – 2am when you donate an item for Hurricane Relief!!

On Wednesday September 20th, Category 5 #HurricaneMaria hit the island of #PuertoRico bringing great devastation.  In less than 24 hours, the whole island lost power and communications, and left many of us around the world without communication with our families and friends. The road to recovery is very long but we need all the help the island can get. I have partnered with a group of other Puerto Ricans here in #Mississippi and we are collecting items to send to the island. We will be collecting #donations starting today through Sunday October 1st afternoon.
Needed Items are the following:
• Boxed/canned milk
• Water
• Batteries (all sizes, particularly C and D)
• Flashlights
• Bath products (toilet paper, toothbrush, etc.)
• Canned food/nonperishable food items
• Baby food
• Disposable diapers for children and adults
• Wipes
• First aid kits and medicine
• Kitchen utensils (especially can openers)
• Personal hygiene items for women, men and children. (Feminine products, deodorant, toothpaste, etc.)
• Clothes and shoes
• Pet food
For more information regarding drop off locations around your area feel free to call or text Evie Torres 787-363-8835 or Jackie Plaza 404-839-7590.
