When can we begin to donate to PR and which channels arw trustworthy?

DO NOT DONATE TO THE RED CROSS a lot of American outlets are linking them DO NOT DO IT. Also be wary of donating to any gofundsme etc anyone can set these up and you don’t know how authentic they are. 

Here are alternatives:

Unidos Por Puerto RIco

This site is being ran by the First Lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló. And at this time I think would be one of the best ones to donate to. 


This organization has been doing good work since 1969. 

Hispanic Federation

Another great organization very transparent and easy with their donation process.
