Donate Now to to Help with Puerto Rico and Florida Relief and Recovery Efforts

In response to Hurricane Katrina, SUNY Geneseo and Livingston County joined forces and created the Livingston CARES program in an effort to aid in disaster relief both nationally and internationally. Since the establishment of Livingston CARES, the program has sent over 1,200 students on 90 service trips across the nation.

Now, Hurricane Fiona caused major damage in Puerto Rico, and Hurricane Ian will cause widespread damage in Florida. Livingston CARES wants to provide relief by spreading the word, donating, and planning trips to help people on the street level. 

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to our 2022 Hurricane Relief Fund to help families and communities in Puerto Rico and Florida with relief and recovery efforts.
