Our friends at Miami Fusion are collecting relief items for the next several months for Puerto Rico, suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The most needed items are daily necessities: diapers, bath soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hygiene items and batteries (the island is still without power).
“We’re in this for the long haul,” says owner Luis Delgado. “It took Puerto Rico six years to come back from Andrew, ten years for New Orleans to get on its feet from Katrina, and attention has already shifted away from Houston, just now starting to clean up after Harvey.”
Donations (including cash) can be dropped off at the restaurant at 2013 5th Ave N. Check Miami Fusion’s Facebook page for updates on needed items and fundraising events.
