Taking action is a win win for all of us! We want to try and get funds to a local on the ground charity that will be able to help. … The AMPR will be able to direct needed help to teachers and their families who have been devastated by these storms so that they may get back to the important work of teaching children.   If you wish to help support this fundraising effort we have setup an optional item online Puerto Rico – Choose to Bring Hopefor all schools that will give parents the opportunity of making a contribution on-line at your convenience.
