Help Us Support the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Fund

Puerto Rico Support

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.

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.
