RELIEF VOLUNTEER WORK
“Puerto Rock Steady is a party with a purpose. I strongly encourage festival guests to volunteer your time while in Puerto Rico with these non-profit organizations who, I believe, are making a positive impact on the children and the infrastructure. Together, we can help bring back a much-needed sense of normalcy on the island.” —Crazy Legs

MENTORING & EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE FARMING
Since Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico has lost its farms, locally-grown food and forests. El Departamento de la Comida and El Fondo de Resiliencia de Puerto Rico’s goal is to impact 200 sustainable food projects within 24 months post hurricane. Focused on five pillars of support—reforestation, seeds and farming, rainwater collection systems, community wellness and renewable energy—it sets out on weekly “farm brigades” with a Solidarity Bus equipped with volunteers and the tools necessary to be effective.
