The Story

  • BACKGROUND: Hurricane Maria landed in Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017 morning, shortly after Hurricane Irma did, causing unprecedented devastation in the island. With just over 100 days before the next hurricane season, the island remains in a severe state of disrepair. Entire communities still need help; over 500,000 do not have electricity; thousands do not have a roof, or shelter. They lack medical equipment and supplies, and even the most basic necessities. The rebuilding effort is critical.
  • REQUESTER: Veterans for Borinquen, Inc. (V4B) is the legacy of a dedicated and diverse team of volunteers–veterans, first responders, health, business and legal professionals, community advocates and others–who have become a family while supporting disaster relief in Puerto Rico. There, they enabled logistics and ground relief operations in support of numerous groups, bringing much needed aid to victims post Hurricane Maria. Their work in the island benefitted many, and while other missions have ended, V4B is charging forward. Please support this relentless group of volunteers–who championed this cause from the start–to continue to provide relief, recovery and rebuilding assistance to the people of Puerto Rico!    
  • MISSION: Veterans for Borinquen, Inc. is a nonprofit organization of veterans and non-veterans dedicated to helping the victims of natural and man-made disasters in Puerto Rico including, but not limited to, veterans, their families and their communities. The organization provides assistance during the response, relief, recovery and reconstruction phases in the aftermath of a disaster or tragedy.   
  • STATUS: Veterans for Borinquen, Inc. is applying for federal 501(c)(3) public charity tax exemption with the IRS and operates as such. All donations will be retroactively tax exempted upon achieving public charity status. All donations will go to benefit victims of natural and man-made disasters and tragedies in Puerto Rico and will focus on the provision of assistance in support of response, relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts.  **Donations are not going to any other effort, but to support this cause.**
