Hurricane Maria is regarded as the worst natural disaster on record in the Caribbean and caused catastrophic damage and a major humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Over half of the island is still without power and only a little over 80 percent has potable water.
"The community is responding to the call and we are now getting the first batch of toys and donations together for the children of Puerto Rico," said Dr. Norman Quintero, who is leading the initiative to raise funds and bring toys in time for the Jan. 6 Three Kings Celebration.
Three Kings Day, or Epiphany, is one of the most important holidays on the Puerto Rican calendar. Traditionally, the island and most of the Latin world marks the eve of Jan. 6 as the day to exchange presents rather than Dec. 25. As part of this tradition, the children often gather grass, hay or straw in shoeboxes for the Magi's horses or camels.
"This year has been very difficult for the island of Puerto Rico and while everyone is working hard to get full power, food and potable water to the island, we are so happy to accept the invitation of the Governor and the First Lady to lead the effort to bring thousands of toys to the children of Puerto Rico," continued Dr. Norman Quintero.
If anyone would like to help with the fundraising effort, please call 1(844) 4-PR-TOYS or 1(844) 477-8697 which has been set up specifically to help people across the country, to be able take part in helping to bring some much-needed joy and hope to the children on the Island of Puerto Rico. 100 percent of all donations are going towards bringing toys to Puerto Rico. People may also visit the GoFundMe account: https://www.gofundme.com/toysforpuertorico to help in this most needed endeavor.
Los Angeles-area residents are welcome to bring monetary donations and newly wrapped toys to the NQR Corp offices located at 1411 Warner Avenue, Suite D Tustin, California 92780.
Mrs. Beatriz Rossello, the First Lady of Puerto Rico, has set up the municipalities of Orocovis, Las Marias, Manati, Salinas, and Humacao for the Jan. 6, Three Kings Day Celebrations.
"In the past, nearly 150,000 children have taken part in the celebration, but due to the challenges and hardship people are experiencing within their communities across the island, we are expecting over 350,000 requests for toys for every student enrolled in Puerto Rico's public-school system," ended Dr. Norman Quintero.
NQR Corp., Ortiz Media Group, Iglesia Getsemani of California, and InService America are among the first organizations listed to help raise the funds and bring the toys to the Island of Puerto Rico.
