Hurricane Fiona, relief for 🇵🇷 

If you’d like to help, here’s some organizations in 🇵🇷 that could use it.

1) Casa Pueblo: org in Adjuntas focused on providing solar electricity, refrigeration and reviving community spaces. They’ve had micro grids in various parts of the island, and were invaluable in the response to María.

2) Comedores Sociales de Puerto Rico: focused on providing food and alleviating hunger, especially after natural disasters like Fiona. They’ve been highly recommended by everyone I’ve spoken with.

3) Brigada Solidaria del Oeste: the West got hit the hardest, as that’s where Fiona bounced off of the island. Focused on providing livable housing and help in communities the US government left behind or ignored after María, including people who lost homes to hurricanes or earthquakes, elderly families, etc.

4) Taller Salud: I can personally vouch for this one, because the executive director is a close friend of my sister’s. Feminist org founded as a response to the forced sterilization of boricua women. Pushes for reproductive autonomy and protects people in abusive situations.

If you donated to any of these, and you feel like getting a shout-out during a fictional ballgame set in an alternate Puerto Rico (that probably has a much less damaged power grid, or will one year), e-mail me a receipt to lnpgaceta@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to mention you during the next @lnpgaceta broadcast.
