SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall says the state's higher education system has a responsibility to help those students whose ability to get an education was put at risk by the storms. So a team of Scientology Volunteer Ministers was happy to work with Puerto Rico Representative Jorge Navarro Suárez, helping him hand out supplies to people in outlying areas of his district. She believes she can to do her part by volunteering her time in events such as the Global Café. "We're grateful for his leadership, for his faith in the efforts that we are doing and of course his continued support for the people of Puerto Rico", he said.

With Puerto Rico being left with a humanitarian crisis after sitting through Category 5 Hurricane Maria's path for over thirty hours, hosting this week's Global Café meant more for the PRSA than sharing a taste of the vibrant island.

The governor said he will reiterate to a congressional delegation visiting Puerto Rico today the need for urgent action, due to the magnitude of the challenges.

For families, like Santos, this is the least they can do to help their homes. "Who knows if they're going to be able to shower or whatnot, but a lot of our officers have family in Puerto Rico".

"It's not just a little town, it's the whole island. The need is unimaginable, and as Central Floridians we need to do all we can to help our brothers and sisters on the island", said Daryl Tol, president and CEO of Florida Hospital and Central Florida Division - Adventist Health System.
