The HPS Network raised nearly $3,500 to help with relief efforts in Puerto Rico after hurricanes Maria and Irma. After being in contact with some of our friends in the medical community regarding what was needed, the Network purchased medical supplies and sent them, with HPS Network Board of Director member Hilda Cardona, to Puerto Rico.
The Appell family helped to encourage donations by offering a $1,500 matching grant.
Puerto Rico has a long way to go to recover from these devastating events. Our hearts and prayers continue to be with our friends and family on the island every day. We know that what we could do is so little compared with so many needs. We look forward to hearing from more and more friends as the situation in Puerto Rico improves.
