Via this option, donors may donate at the suggested levels or any amount of their choosing to the Hurricane Irma Relief efforts.
We want to ensure that people within our state understand this is a local/CT state initiative driven by this collective. Therefore, the third option for donors is donate by check. All checks should be made payable to Hispanic Federation with CT-Irma Relief in the Memo section of the check and sent to Hispanic Federation, Connecticut State Office, 175 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Hartford, CT 06106.
Our primary goal is to ensure our island receives all of the direct immediate disaster relief it needs. This means making sure our elected officials in CT and in Congress treat Puerto Rico with the same urgency as other natural disasters.
Please contact your congressional representatives and demand that Puerto Rico receive full and complete FEMA support and reimbursement.
We at the CT Puerto Rican Agenda appreciate the outpouring of support we have received already, and we look forward to uniting our diaspora community around helping our people weather another storm.
