Although Hurricane Maria slashed through Puerto Rico more than two months ago, many of the worst-hit towns are still recovering and remain in great need. Purple Lizard Maps, a local cartographic design firm dedicated to making beautiful maps for people who love to explore, has taken initiative to help with Puerto Rico relief efforts. They have partnered with the Puerto Rico Community Foundation to establish the “Recovery NOW – Western PR and Central Mountains Fund.”  Taking advantage of the knowledge and skills of the local community foundation, the Recovery NOW Fund will be directed towards areas that were already economically disadvantaged but are now in extreme need due to the hurricane’s aftermath.  Centre Foundation is happy to promote this project created by a Centre county business and implemented by the Puerto Rico Community Foundation to help Puerto Rico residents find the relief they need.
