In light of all the recent natural disasters, PILG is hosting a fundraiser. Please stop by between 8:30 am and 1:30 pm and donate to relief efforts in Puerto Rico by purchasing some delicious baked goods! All proceeds going directly to hurricane relief. If you’re not hungry, make a donation at one of the kiosks to one of the following websites:
♣ One America Appeal https://www.oneamericaappeal.org
The One America Appeal was launched by all five living former American Presidents to encourage their fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey (Texas), and has been expanded to include areas most affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria (Florida and Puerto Rico/U.S. Virgin Islands). 100 cents out of every dollar donated goes to hurricane recovery. All monies collected will be distributed immediately to the designated recovery funds. All donations are also tax-deductible.
You may choose to donate to all hurricane relief efforts or only one specific area.
