Program to Support Puerto Rico

Thanks for your support of THE FLOOD benefit concert, as we work together to raise funds to benefit communities in Puerto Rico in their ongoing recovery from the Sept. 2017 hurricane. Even if you will not be able join us for this special performance in NYC, please consider making a contribution to our goal! We hope to raise at least $3000 and if possible exceed that amount to have an even bigger impact!

Here's the story of another community that recovered from a natural disaster: During the summer of 1993, the American Midwest experienced the most devastating flood in national history, as the Mississippi River and its tributaries overflowed their banks. On August 1, the levee broke near Columbia, Illinois, submerging the small town of Valmeyer. Peter Mills' and Cara Reichel's original musical THE FLOOD, inspired by this story of a town that rebuilt itself on higher ground, dramatizes one fictionalized community's battle with nature, and its struggle to rebuild.

Prospect Theater Company, in partnership with Debbie Slevin's greymatters productions, is proud to present a one night concert of this musical on Saturday night, Sept. 8, 2018 in NYC at the TimesCenter. A cast of Broadway and Prospect stars will be joined by a chorus of more than 30 singers from the area surrounding Valmeyer, which was so impacted by flooding 25 years ago.

The message of THE FLOOD is one of hope, and the power of what can happen when communities come together to create positive change. We hope to raise significant funds through this benefit concert to help speed our friends in Puerto Rico on their recovery process. Thanks for any amount you can contribute to support!

Nearly one year after Hurricane Maria, thousands are still displaced, have no homes, jobs, or access to health care in Puerto Rico. Schools have been closed, businesses have struggled to reopen, and the island's most vulnerable residents are just one storm away from losing what little they have. Puerto Rico still needs our help!

The Hispanic Federation created the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program with a clear goal: to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. To do so, the Federation has taken unprecedented action, helping to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributing millions of pounds of food, water and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivering emergency relief aid to the 78 hard-hit municipalities, and seeding 28 million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico.

The scale of disaster in Puerto Rico requires all of us to support our fellow American citizens on the island and families whom have been displaced in what is unquestionably a long journey towards a just recovery.

We have created a donation page to help Puerto Rico. Proceeds will be used by the UNIDOS Disaster Relief & Recovery Program to help our family, friends and fellow citizens in Puerto Rico.

Please consider making a donation. Thank you for your generosity!
