Backpacks Full of Hope Returns to Puerto Rico, and You Can Help!

Last year, a group of 19 iLEAD learners and chaperones traveled to Puerto Rico over spring break to assist with relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The group will be returning this spring break to continue their efforts. Only this year, there are 31 learners and chaperones going.

Learners will be replanting much-needed agriculture and building sustainable homes and shelters for those left homeless by the devastating storm. And to do so, they need your help! Please consider donating to the GoFundMe campaign to raise funds. If you cannot donate, please SHARE the page on social media.

The learners also want to bring needed supplies to the island. You can contribute by purchasing items off the Amazon Wishlist here.
