B & Meats and Seafood and McCarthy and Schiering Cooking It Up For A Great Cause --Helping Guayama, Puerto Rico Survivors, Saturday, November 4, 2017
B & E Meats and Seafood is getting cooking to support a great cause - helping survivors of Hurricane Maria by collecting funds and needed items to send back to islanders. Learning of the plight of a large family in rural Guayama, Puerto Rico, Owners Jeff Green and Steve Dunaychuk, along with store manager, Gordy Maggs decided to step up to help. McCarthy and Schiering, a neighboring wine shop, also agreed to participate. Together the two companies will be serving up delicious Cuban pork roast, carne asada, candied salmon and tasty wines donated by some wonderful vitners.
Organizer, Bettina Carey wrote, "Imagine this, an island of palm trees and blue seas now turned into an island that looks like a war zone with uprooted trees and black water as a result of Hurricane Maria. Now imagine life under martial law, limited access to funds as banks will only allow $100 withdrawals, boiling contaminated water to bathe in and drink, 8-9 hour long lines to get fuel, limited or no cell service, no electricity, 2 million chickens dead resulting in limited access to eggs, food rationing, most roads in disrepair, and only limited access to clean water, the list of the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria goes on and on. Months, if not years, of recovery is expected to cost billions."
Carey adds, "For weeks I have felt helpless to help but now as a result of B & E and McCarthy and Schiering, along with many online donors her family will get the help that they so desperately need."
Funds can be donated directly to "Help Guayama Puerto Rico Survivors" GoFundMe account at: https://www.gofundme.com/helpguayamapuertoricosurvivors
