NYC District Council of Carpenters on Goodwill Mission to Puerto Rico

The District Council of Carpenters partnered with Heart 9/11 to bring some joy to children down in Puerto Rico.  A toy drive collected quite the haul for the kids in areas affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, and thanks to Heart 9/11, the toys were able to get there in time to be handed out for the holidays.

NYCDCC Representatives went down on December 18th to set up a neighborhood party at Iglesio De Christo in the neighborhood of La Playita.  The next day they visited the PR Children’s Hospital in Bayamon and PR Medical Center University Pediatric Hospital unit and handed out the toys to a bunch of very happy children.

The District Council and Heart 9/11 are also currently sending down skilled carpenters to help rebuild homes and structures that have been ravaged by the natural disasters, including areas in Florida and Texas.  It’s a long road ahead, but the NYCDCC is proud to help in the ongoing recovery efforts.
