Help Us Support the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Fund
LGBTQ Centers and communities around the globe came together to help Houston’s LGBTQ community after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. We are still just beginning the recovery process, but the situation in Puerto Rico needs that same support.
We are excited that CenterLink, the national organization supporting the development of strong, sustainable LGBT community centers, has created a fund to support Centro Comunitario LGBTT de Puerto Rico.
The Montrose Center has already made a gift to this fund and we encourage you to share this information.
CenterLink has set up a fundraising page for those wishing to make donations. Funds collected from this campaign will assist the CenterLink member center, Centro Comunitario LGBTT de Puerto Rico, to provide relief efforts to the community that they serve. Along with helping to purchase batteries, flashlights, a generator for the Center, non-perishable food, and other hard-to-come-by essentials for community members, funds will also go to assist those least likely to receive assistance from post-storm recovery efforts – the LGBTQ community.
If people wish to send needed items directly (specifically batteries, flashlights, non-perishable food items like powdered milk) they can send SMALL packages to:
Centro Comunitario LGBTT de Puerto Rico
Attn: Cecilia La Luz
P.O. Box 9501
San Juan, PR 00908
The latest updates indicate that the main post office in San Juan is now open for PO box deliveries.
