Flag of Puerto RIcoDo you have loose change in your purse?

Is it in your couch?

How about your car? Pocket? Find it on the Street?

Pennies for Puerto Rico is Jose de Diego's way of giving to our families and those in need. After the ravaging effects of Hurricane Maria and the initial swipe of Hurricane Irma, the island is devastated and in need of all the support and help that anyone can muster. Please, drop your change (and anything else you'd like to add) into the two large water jugs on the main office counter.

Let's shatter our goal of $1000 by the end of October.

All monies collected will go to hurricane relief.

Thank-you all for the contribution and support.
