Send aid to Puerto Rico

Urgent humanitarian aid is needed in Puerto Rico. A coalition of individuals and groups in Minnesota have banded together to send relief efforts: Coalition de Boricuas en Minnesota.

A drive is underway to fill a plane with supplies that will leave Wednesday morning from MSP.

The devastation from Hurricane Maria is unimaginable. This is a boots-on-the-ground effort to bring resources to local neighborhoods.

La comunidad Puerto Riqueña en Minnesota está haciendo todo lo posible para enviar agua y otras necesidades a la isla. ¡Necesitamos su ayuda!

We need your help. Send resources or donate—help in whatever way you are able.
