WHY NOT CARE has been working closely with local churches, community organizations, city agencies and families to give as much caring to Puerto Rico as we can. We have been involved in numerous initiatives with the goal of raising donations for hygiene products, food, book bags, toys, money and awareness all geared towards helping the people of Puerto Rico on and off the island. Our goal is to continue the effort and lend support with helping to inspire and educate the people of Puerto Rico with long term empowerment.
EDUCATE | UNITE | EMPOWER
This festival is geared towards providing the community with information, resources, and access to free programs available throughout New York City. In 3 festivals we have given out over 8500 bookbags with supplies in low-income communities throughout the city along with free resources for the over 10k guests that have attended the past 3 festivals. We service the entire family to promote generational growth.
