80% of Puerto Rico’s crops were decimated by Hurricane Maria. Here’s how to help…
On Jan 29, 2018, one hundred and twenty five City Winery team members head to Puerto Rico for three days, where we’ll work to rebuild farms devastated by Hurricane Maria. Chef Cuevas of Restaurant 1919 and the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel acts as the leader in the farm to table movement in Puerto Rico and is collaborating with City Winery to help those in need. City Winery employees will be making the trip with duffle bags filled with supplies such as ground coffee, shovels, extension cords, dehydrated milk, diapers, and much more. We’re doing boots on the ground efforts to help those affected, and together we’ll make a real difference. On behalf of CEO Michael Dorf and the City Winery family, please join us.
100% of the donations will go directly to the farming community in Puerto Rico through Foundation for Puerto Rico, a 501(c)(3) and fiscal sponsor of Puerto Rico.
City Winery locations are also accepting donated supplies at drop-off locations in their lobbies. Farmers and community leaders have requested the following list of supplies. City Winery employees will ship and/or transport donations to the local community upon their arrival into San Juan on January 29, 2018. Thank you!
