On September 19, 2017 Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico leaving over three million people in ruins. Puerto Rico is without power, water is in short supply, finding safe shelter is getting harder to come by, hospitals are already filled to capacity and the reserves of basic supplies are beginning to diminish by the day.
Teamsters have always been there to help in times of disaster, and today is no different. Teamster drivers from around the country have volunteered to travel to Puerto Rico to transport emergency supplies to people in need. Teamster members have donated thousands in money and supplies to assist hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida. Teamsters 2010 is joining in the effort and you can help too!
