Puerto Rico - What can we do?

There is an immediate need for assistance in Puerto Rico. Below are suggested items that can be sent to Puerto Rico for distribution.  It is recommended that you pick up an $18.85 flat-rate shipping box at the Post Office and fill it to capacity with any of the suggested items below.   The other option is to order through Amazon Prime.  Estimated delivery through Amazon is about 12 – 19 days.  Because the need is immediate we ask that you ship your items out no later than October 23.   A church member in the district has family in Puerto Rico who have agreed to assist with distribution.
