  • Important Information from our Board President Luis Avila
     
    Help Mexico and Puerto Rico
     
    Dear members,
     
    Over the last week and a half, I have received numerous inquiries from concerned colleagues and friends inquiring about the natural disasters in Mexico and Puerto Rico and asking what they can do to help. It has become apparent that these disasters have affected West Michigan in a deeply personal way. Personally, while my family and friends are all safe, some have suffered significant damage to their homes, schools and churches, including total loss in some cases. Search and rescue efforts continue around the clock in both countries and, unfortunately, there is significant loss of human life. International aid has been slow to arrive.
     
    Because of this, I am very proud to announce that the West Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit on whose Board of Directors I serve, is now accepting donations to send directly to reliable aid agencies in both countries. All donations will be tax-deductible, and 100% of the funds will be split equally between organizations in the two countries. The Foundation will act as a fiduciary, but will keep zero funds from this effort. Please click here for WZZM TV 13's coverage of this important effort: Click here
     
    I would like to personally ask that you and/or any organization(s) you represent donate to this important cause. Any amount is helpful! This is an opportunity for West Michigan to show that it stands in solidarity with the people of Mexico and Puerto Rico. Your donations will go directly to assist the search and rescue efforts, as well as the victims of these natural disasters.
     
    Here is how you can help:
     
     
    Please make sure you include your contact information so that the Foundation can provide you documentation for tax purposes. Feel free to direct any questions about this important effort to Guillermo Cisneros, Executive Director, or myself, Luis Avila, Board President, at 616-452-3960.
     
    Thank you for your support with these important efforts and please take the time to share with your networks.
     
    Gracias friends!
     
    Luis Avila
