Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief

Puerto Rico Relief Team

Veterans at Sea is returning to Puerto Rico to continue our ongoing post-hurricane relief efforts.   While waiting for holiday season to wind down, Veterans at Sea is gearing up to launch Operation Boots on Ground – Puerto Rico, a major recovery mission, beginning January 15 in Lares, Puerto Rico.   

A group of veterans from the continental United States will be providing the Municipio of Lares and surrounding Barrios with solar lighting, water filtration systems, tarps for rooves as well as providing basic needs such as non-perishable food, hygiene items, cleaning supplies and clothes. 

Our volunteers will be operating in areas still affected by the two storms – Hurricane’s Irma and Marina.  Most of these homes have not had power or water since Irma made landfall at the beginning of September before Hurricane Maria followed up and devastated the island.   

Donations will go directly to support operations and relief aid to those still affected by the storm, overseen by an all-volunteer team of Veterans and Civilian Led Relief.  

Donations to support this mission can be sent to the following address:
