Hand to hand

Sunset Park Relief Coalition has established a rapidly-growing relief effort for the people of Puerto Rico. It is a community-based, all-volunteer effort that is gathering, sending, and distributing donations.

A hand-to-hand endeavor, the goal of Sunset Park Relief is to establish a reliable network of local grassroots organizations to create and maintain a supply chain of essential goods for immediate survival and the long-term rebuilding of lives and communities.

 

Here for the long haul

The overwhelming success of the continuing donations drive has cleared the path for the development of the second phase in this effort. Coalition members are on the ground in Puerto Rico working to expand communications and establish a grassroots organizational network for distributing donations on the island.

HELP US REACH OUR GOAL
HELP US REACH THE PEOPLe

Your support is invaluable for ensuring that the hundreds of tons of collected goods reach the marginalized neighborhoods of San Juan, and the rural areas beyond. Funds raised from individual support and private sector sponsorship will go to the transportation of essential goods and medicine, and creating infrastructure for long term needs to be met. We have a local team of dedicated truckers in place and delivery routes on the map. 

 
 

 

Your support will help to deliver desperately needed supplies.
