Livingston CARES Board of Directors voted to expand the scope of our work in Puerto Rico to include an appeal for
contributions to help with the recovery efforts related to both Hurricane Maria and the January 2020 earthquakes. Donations to the
Puerto Rico fund will be combined with a $1,000.00 grant from the Marge Harding Memorial Fund to Livingston CARES. The funds will be
used for special project needs identified by frontline host agencies in Puerto Rico and approved by the board of directors. The funds will not be used for travel expenses related to our Puerto Rico service trips.

Livingston Cares March service trip to Puerto Rico was cancelled due to COVID-19 and our January trip to Puerto Rico during spring break was cancelled due to the earthquakes. We have made a long-term commitment to service work in Puerto Rico and will continue our service trips in January and March of 2021 and in future years similar to the years of service (40 service trips) Livingston CARES did after Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi and Harrison County, Mississippi.

Donations to Livingston CARES general operating fund

We are continuing to collect donations that go into our general operating fund. These dollars help us continue to serve local and national communities through our disaster recovery work, and support students and community members in making the commitment to serve in these communities. We are careful stewards of these funds, and as with all donations to CARES, your donation is tax deductible.
