SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 - A DEVASTATING DAY FOR PUERTO RICO

THE GOAL: 

TO BRING JOY, HOPE AND LOVE

TO THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE AND PLACES

OF PUERTO RICO

RecoRico partners with amazing organizations that are
making an impact on their communities.

"...but when you grow up you are going to find a beautiful Puerto Rico."

HURRICANE MARIA & FEMA  

FEMA reports that as of June, 2018  they approved over 450,000 individual applications for assistance. BUT THE AVERAGE INDIVIDUAL HAS RECEIVED LESS THAN $2000 IN FEDERAL ASSISTANCE.

BLUE ROOFS

FEMA distributed over 125,000 blue tarps to provide temporary roofing for homes and businesses. In many areas, people are putting their 3rd and 4th set of tarps on their home as we are now well over a year since the hurricanes.

Over 290,000 Puerto Ricans evacuated the island in the months following Hurricane Maria out of necessity.  Their presence is missed, leaving a void of money, leadership and manpower to rebuild the island.

AMERICA'S GULF COAST

After Hurricane Katrina it is estimated that it took 8-10 years and over100,000 volunteers to help the area fully recover. It will take just as many extra volunteers to help Puerto Rico. 

POWER AND WATER

Most areas are fully functional with power and water, only a few isolated mountainous areas remain without power.  

The message the island wants to portray is that Puerto Rico is open for business! Tourists do not have to worry about electricity, cell service or water. Everything is fully operational and ready for you. 

Our "Giving Back" opportunities will be with families and communities still effected by the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria.
