Lexington Unites for Puerto Rico

Lexington Unites for Puerto Rico

A Container of Mercy  
 
Hancock Church, in partnership with the Lexington Interfaith Clergy Association, is leading a Lexington-wide drive to fill a 40’ shipping container with relief supplies for the people of Puerto Rico, and to gather monetary donations to purchase generators, bottled water, and water cisterns and water filters. Hancock Church will underwrite the cost of packing and shipping the container to Puerto Rico.  
 
Trustworthy Partners in Puerto Rico  
 
The Third Presbyterian Church in Aguadilla and the Centro Cristiano de Restauracion in Cabo Rojo were identified as trusted partners by Carmen Ramos-Kalsow, Hancock Church Moderator and a native of Puerto Rico. These two churches on the western end of the island will ensure that donations will be used for the benefit of those most in need and not be used for sectarian purposes. For the complete list of needs, see below.
