Hurricane Relief Fund: Columbus for Puerto Rico is committed to creating a WAVE OF LOVE AND SUPPORT from Columbus, Ohio DIRECTLY to the people of Puerto Rico.


On September 20, 2017 Puerto Rico was slammed by Hurricane Maria, a powerful Category 4. Maria followed mere weeks after Irma - another powerful storm which devastated much of the Caribbean, and Florida Keys.

Within days of the Hurricane, seeing the difficulty of the relief efforts mired in bureaucracy, Laura and Jorge Posada (formerly of the NY Yankees) knew they had to take helping the people of Puerto Rico into their own hands.


Their plan was simple: Collect supplies, load them onto two charter planes to Puerto Rico, and hand deliver those supplies door to door to the people themselves.

Those flights are still continuing - and with your support, more flights will carry on Laura and Jorge's effective and direct response for the families of Puerto Rico.

Hurricane Maria is the strongest storm to make landfall in Puerto Rico in 85 years. It came ashore with sustained winds of 155 mph, knocking out power to the entire island. Trees were uprooted, homes were destroyed, and there was also widespread flooding.


Help us show the people of Puerto Rico that Columbus has the BIGGEST HEART of them all!!

"This is total devastation,” said Carlos Mercader, a spokesman for Puerto Rico’s governor. “Puerto Rico, in terms of the infrastructure, will not be the same. ... This is something of historic proportions.”
