Puerto Rico Application 2020

  • Join Give Back Beyond Cincinnati as we travel to Puerto Rico to provide disaster relief through Fuller Center. This trip is scheduled for June 28 - July 5, 2020.

    During the trip, we’ll provide disaster relief and rebuild neighborhoods devastated by Hurricane Maria and recent earthquakes. Hurricane Maria’s ferocious, 155-mph winds plowed through the island of Puerto Rico, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. It is the worst natural disaster on record in Puerto Rico. The island was without power for months.

    During the trip, we’ll be working on rebuilding, construction, painting and cleaning the island. The team will be spending 5 days doing volunteer work and then spend the evenings relaxing, socializing and immersing ourselves in local culture.

    The cost of the trip is $970, plus flight. Included will be*:

    1. Transportation once in Puerto Rico
    2. Accommodations (hostel/bunk beds)
    3. All Meals
    4. *Details are subject to change
