We all want to extend a helping hand, and with this initiative, we offer people a transparent, effective and quick alternative to contribute, with the guarantee that their aid will reach the right hands,” said Laura Tirado, CEO of Uva!

The purchase of the Uva! Kits will be available to residents in and outside of Puerto Rico until Jan. 17 and will be delivered Jan. 18.
