We’re pleased to announce that the first shipment of donated HANS™ PowerPacks and Solar BriefCases arrived in Puerto Rico after a 10-day voyage from Houston to the town of Mayaguez. Although new power lines were installed in Mayaguez after Hurricane Maria destroyed the grid, utility service is irregular and communities still experience outages 2-3 days a week. Unreliable electricity inconveniences everyone, but it creates particular hardship for those suffering from illnesses.
The non-profit Somebody Cares Puerto Rico received the units and delivered them to families caring for loved ones with serious health issues.
Based on reports we’ve received, the HANS™ PowerPacks gave these families peace of mind knowing they have a source of light when providing necessary care. They can also keep their cell phones charged to call for emergency help when needed.
Other units are being placed with families in similar circumstances and all recipients are truly grateful for the generosity of those who have made donations to the Energize-Mobilize: Puerto Rico campaign.
Remember that for every donated HANS™ PowerPack 300, Stage 2 will donate a matching HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60. Further, once we reach our goal of 100 donated HANS™ PowerPacks, Stage 2 will donate an additional 100 HANS™ PowerPack 300 and 100 HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60 units.
The Energize-Mobilize: Puerto Rico campaign officially ends on July 31 and we’d love to hit that milestone!
Thank you for your support and for spreading the word.
