We're incredibly proud to have been included in a recent delegation to Puerto Rico to present a $40,000 donation! Sam Delgado, NJ4PR Chair, made a check presentation of $20,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico, and $20,000 of the Salvation Army of Puerto Rico. So far this year, NJ4PR has donated $50,000 to each of these worthy organizations for work directly with those affected on the island.
The Delegation was transported to a shelter at the Puerto Rican Sports and Recreation Headquarters. We met with the Secretary of State Luis G. Rivera-Marin, Secretary of Sports and Recreation Andres Volmar Mendez and Acting Secretary of Housing Dennis Gonzalez, and were able to talk with families who shared heartbreaking stories. Many members of NJ4PR were part of the Delegation.
