SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – More than two dozen volunteers from a South Hadley church are on their way to Puerto Rico to assist in the ongoing hurricane recovery.Members of South Hadley’s 2nd Baptist Church prayed for a successful journey to Puerto Rico.
Twenty-seven volunteers are going to rebuild a baptist seminary on the Hurricane Ravaged Island and they’ll also build a Youth Camp. “Both these facilities will be used as a distribution point for materials and food, and also be a place for housing all future volunteers that are coming in,” said David Tetreault, disaster relief coordinator.
The Puerto Rico Mission is funded by donations from church members, a Holyoke business, and a spaghetti dinner fundraiser.The money will cover tools, building materials and some travel expenses.
