SAN ANTONIO – The Red Cross is providing relief to the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Fiona left a path of devastation and flooding.
KSAT Community is working with viewers to help support those relief efforts.
On Monday during an afternoon phone bank at KSAT 12, more than $14,000 was raised through a total of 134 donations. Nearly 200 phone calls were answered during the 7-hour event.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra has declared a Public Health Emergency as hundreds of thousands of people are left without electricity and water in scorching temperatures.
Fiona hit just five years after Hurricane Maria caused a major humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, killing thousands and crippling the electrical grid.
Red Cross volunteers are helping assess the damage and have provided hundreds of households with emergency supplies with more supplies on the way.
Your donations are helping the people of Puerto Rico.
