You Can Help Puerto Rico, Hit Hard By Hurricane Maria


Here is a note from long-time boxing fixture Gaby Penagaricano, and info on how you can help Puerto Rico, which got slammed by a hurricane.
“Hurricane Maria hit us very hard  I cannot begin to explain how tough things are in Puerto Rico.  Food, water and fuel are extremely scarce down here.  Kilometric lines to get basic supplies are very common everywhere.
My daughters, Ana and Alexa, have created a donation fund to aid so many victims in need on the Island.  They were broken when after a few days we were able to drive around the countryside, and witnessed the widespread devastation.  Help is simply needed in every corner of this Island.  There is a real humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Below is the link for my daughters’ donation fund. Donating is very easy.  Any amount helps!  Please make sure you donate to the correct fund with my family’s last name “PENAGARICANO” and a picture of a cow amidst the vegetation wreckage.”
