Puerto Rico has been without power since Hurricane Maria struck on September 20th, the most devastating storm to hit the island in a century. As recovery efforts continue in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, our nation is once again coming together to aid those affected in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
President Obama and the four other living former presidents have extended their Hurricane Harvey relief fund, One America Appeal, to include Hurricane Maria relief efforts, and there are many other ways for you to contribute as well. Here are just a few of the organizations aiding Puerto Ricans in the wake of this storm that need your support:
