Dear Commons Community,
Puerto Rico is desperately trying to recover from Hurricane Maria but efforts are moving slowly. Of grave concern is the lack of electricity or clean running water. Here are several photos which capture the eeriness of being in Puerto Rico at night without any lights.
There are many relief efforts on the way throughout the country. In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Office is coordinating these efforts. Here at the CUNY Graduate Center, Vice President Matt Schoengood has sent out an email indicating that collection tables for Puerto Rico Relief will be set up in the entrance area this week. Please be generous.
