It has been over two months since hurricanes Irma and Maria made landfall but as the effects of Irma are mostly cleaned up and our attention is focused on Thanksgiving, less than half of Puerto Rico has had their electrical power restored, cellular phone service is only at 65% and one in 10 people still lack clean water.  Regardless of your location, budget, or ability, there are many ways to help Puerto Rico this Thanksgiving season. Here are just a few ways how, and just remember, every little bit counts. . One way to help hurricane victims is to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. If you're unable to join one of their trips to Puerto Rico, you can still donate to hurricane relief effort so that they can afford necessary supplies that are needed to put these houses together. Many hurricane victims still find themselves without the resources to meet their basics needs, so consider a donation of food, water, and clothing to hurricane victims through organizations, such as The American Red Cross or the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) . Some of the people who were hit hardest in Puerto Rico were pregnant women, new moms, babies, and children. You can help with a cash donation to the Save the Children's Hurricane Maria Children's Relief Fund, especially for little ones and even breastfeeding mothers. You can also donate cash to a general fund through The Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration (PRFAA) so they can purchase specific items at the time they are needed [CLICK HERE].
