Students from New York and New Jersey have launched Fiesta4Hope, an organization dedicated to helping rebuild Puerto Rico.
“We have branches in local schools as well as in schools in Boston, Texas, and California. We created a logo, designed a website, set up a fundraising page, a gift registry, an Instagram, and a Facebook page,” says LeHane.
Fiesta4Hope has also received support from Kelley Drye, Province, DDR Corp., Tupperware, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
All proceeds from Fiesta4Hope are sent directly to Centro PASO. Despite having limited funds, Centro PASO provides job training, case management, family counseling, culinary and gardening lessons, a community dining hall, emergency food supplies and medical aid, and an after school program for those still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Maria.
