For Immediate Release –
Puerto Rico has been hit with a catastrophic hurricane which not only brought tremendous winds, but also severe flooding (still ongoing) and has resulted in great part of the island being destroyed and inaccessible. For the past few days, there has been no electricity or potable water. There was a near complete failure of all cell phone towers, ATM’s, and roads leading into many towns are inaccessible, blocking delivery of essentials such as food and drinking water. Thousands of people have been rendered homeless and many buildings, bridges and roads have been destroyed.
Many of our team members have been unable to reach their family members and friends, and can only hope that they are doing well under the circumstances.
In these difficult times, the Lemartec team is coming together and invites the general public to contribute towards this noble cause by donating whatever little you can.
We are not requesting monetary donations, but rather first necessity products, which include: bottled water, food- nonperishable items, batteries, baby supplies, etc. Please refer to the attached list to give you all a general idea of the donations we are in need for: First Necessity Items List
We are currently coordinating efforts to make all these donations available through the official entity of the First Lady of PR – “United for Puerto Rico”. For more information about this beautiful initiative, visit: http://unidosporpuertorico.com/en/.
Donations will be collected at our Lemartec Headquarters, located at 11740 SW 80th Street, Third Floor, Miami, FL 33183, starting on Monday 09/25/17 with an initial delivery to “United for Puerto Rico” over the weekend. If you have any questions, or in order to bring your donation, please contact:

Please take this is opportunity to clean out your closets, attics, and garages and make room for future use. This is a great opportunity to give any new or gently used items for others to love. Your generous donations can help the people of Puerto Rico, and those who have family in the Island will greatly appreciate the efforts.
