"The people of Puerto Rico welcomed us with such big hearts and were so appreciative and grateful we were there. Not only to lend a hand, but also to provide a much needed boost of new energy to their teams who have been working around the clock for 90+ days since the hurricane. Their resilience, enthusiasm and passion was truly uplifting and contagious. Puerto Rico is alive and thriving thanks to its incredible spirit."
