Natural Disaster Relief Fund: Mexico, Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida

In less than a month, our hemisphere has been devastated by historic natural disasters.  Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands were virtually destroyed by Hurricane Maria, barely days after suffering impact by Hurricane Irma.  Mexico has suffered at least three earthquakes in recent weeks, including the Sept. 19th earthquake that left 200+ dead and a rescue and recovery operation that is still ongoing.  Meanwhile, on the U.S. Mainland, communities in Texas and Florida still struggle to recuperate after hurricanes Harvey and Irma, respectively.

Help is urgently needed for drinking water, food, medication, clothing, fuel, clean up supplies, equipment and other essential items.  Please consider pledging a donation.
