We would like to recognize the following kind donors to the FuenteCo Writers & Artists In Need Fund
FuenteCo gives back programming
A fundraiser to provide free groceries to Puerto Rican families in desperate need after Hurricane Maria.
FuenteCo is raising funds for La Gran Provision, a Puerto Rican grassroots organization that provides free groceries and supplies directly to families in financially vulnerable neighborhoods who are in desperate need after being hit hard by Hurricane Maria.
As an organization that fiercely values both local community bonds and global citizenship, we feel it's our duty to use our platform to help Puerto Rico during this time of crisis. We invite you to join us in this effort.
La Gran Provision is run by Herminia "Myta" Diaz, the mother of our co-founder Patricia Coral. Myta and her volunteers will use all raised funds to purchase food staples and toiletries, and personally distribute them to families in need. Through our personal connection with the La Gran Provision team, we hope to give you the chance to help Puerto Rico in a transparent, immediate, and meaningful way.
FuenteCo for HOU
AFTER HURRICANE HARVEY, WE PUT OUR RESOURCES TOWARD CREATING A SCHEDULE OF RETREATS AND EVENTS THAT ARE COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE.
In this small way, we hope to give Houston's creative community some opportunities to come together, to create spaces that allow us to think about our writing and our art. If you've been affected by the storm, if you're allocating all your resources to rebuilding efforts, or if you're longing to get together with others in the spirit of community, of looking forward, of creating together, we would love to see you.
We also hope to continue working with non-profits and communities in need over the coming years. If you feel like Fuente Collective's programming could benefit your group, please do get in touch with us. We would love to talk with you!
