Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has already donated. Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.

Puerto Rico, post-Hurricane Maria, is facing a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. Many of the island’s 3.4 million residents, who are U.S. citizens, are living without power and running water, and food supplies are rapidly dwindling.

In an effort to help the people of Puerto Rico, Ledgecrest Health Care Center, part of Apple Rehab Inc., is hosting a donation drive from now through December. Items needed include non-perishable foods, toiletries and clothing and shoes for men, women, children and infants. Donated items can be dropped off at Ledgecrest Health Care Center, located at 154 Kensington Road, Kensington, CT 06037.

“I was immediately on board when the employees came to me with this idea. I could see how concerned they were for not only their own family members, but the entire island. Quite a few of the employees grew up in Puerto Rico,” said Kerri Kuhn, administrator at Ledgecrest Health Care Center.

Ledgecrest Health Care Center is set to send its first box of donated items, and will continue to collect and send boxes in the coming months. Boxes will be sent via UPS to a Ledgecrest employee’s family member in Puerto Rico who will help distribute donations. Liz Davila, the employee of Ledgecrest Health Care Center, said, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has already donated. Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.”
