PCCA Foundation to Support Puerto Rico Relief Efforts
Dear Members and Friends of PCCA:
As you know and have heard over the past couple of weeks, Hurricane Maria has wreaked havoc and devastating destruction over the entire island of Puerto Rico. Also, many of you know that longtime PCCA member, past president, and Hall of Famer Steve Spears and his wife, Flory, have their business and live on this beautiful island.
Supplies and financial assistance are needed now, but as is the case in all these many catastrophic situations, it is difficult to know the most efficient and effective means to achieve the most bang for your buck. We have been in contact with Steve Spears over the past couple of weeks, and in his words:
All I Want for Christmas Is Normal
All, Two months after Maria, we are struggling mightily to get the island up and running. At this writing, about 90 percent have water. Some 40-50 percent of the populace have on-again and off-again power-company-supplied electricity. About 75 percent of cell phones have limited service access, and 50 percent plus probably have limited internet access. There is still vegetative and property damage debris everywhere. It's not that nobody is picking it up; it is that the quantity is so astronomical. We still have fallen trees and leaning poles, hanging cables of all varieties, collapsed buildings, homes, roofs everywhere. Perhaps 10 percent of still-standing traffic signals and streetlights are working.
