As Puerto Rico moves from the acute relief phase into a longer term period of rebuilding, Empact's mission of immediate aid distribtution is coming to a close. We are exceptionally proud of the work that we were able to do on the ground for and in the city of Ciales and the surrounding communities, including:
-310,000 pounds of cargo coordinated through Miami distribution centers
-11 tons of aid directly distributed the "last mile" to needy Americans who had seen nothing prior
-Thousands of American citizens from over 600 families provided with necessary supplies for short term survival
While our folks worked hard on the ground, in Miami, and at home; none of this would have been possible without you, our donors. Our mission is only viable because good people like yourself send us.
Unfortunately, this will not be the last disaster. If you'd like to continue supporting our ongoing rescue and disaster relief missions, please consider donating to our ongoing training project at https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/rescuer-training-2017-2018/. This project allows us to maintain our skills and readiness so that we can be ready to deploy to disasters at a moments notice.
Again, thank you for your support of the people of Puerto Rico and our mission to distribute aid to the most needy amongst us.

We are so pleased to be able to announce that your support has made this mission possible and has brought essential supplies to thousands of Americans! Today alone, our team in Ciales distributed food and potable water to 625 Puerto Rican families throughout the region! After many logistical hurdles, we are on the ground and pushing supplies directly to those who need it most. We literally could not have done this without you, our supporters. But the mission isn't over! Please share our story with your friends, family, and followers, specially in light of GlobalGiving's annual Bonus Day today, Thursday October 5th. Thank you!
