Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift needs volunteers in and around Miami to assemble care packages for hurricane victims in Puerto Rico.
Care package assembly sessions are scheduled for:
- Saturday, Oct. 14, between 1-8 p.m.
- Sunday, Oct. 15, between 1-8 p.m.
Each will take place at 3550 N.W. 59th Street in Miami.
To sign up, Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift asks you send an email to PRCareLift@gmail.com with your availability and a contact phone number.
The family care packages will be sent directly to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Two flights already departed Friday, carrying 22,000 pounds of supplies.
Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift is a hurricane relief effort that works to bring much-needed supplies to the most devastated regions of Puerto Rico. The organization works in partnership with South Florida's own Spirit Airlines and Lufthansa Technik.
The effort has delivered 50,000 pounds of supplies, raised $175K in cash and donations and evacuated some 500 people from the island during six, free-of-charge flights.
Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift says there is still much left to do. They have created a GoFundMe page to raise money for their efforts. For more information, click here.
