Students and teachers of the towns of Guánica, Guayanilla and Yauco will be able to use the 200 tents as classrooms equipped with tables, desks, and other necessary materials.

“After hearing about the destroyed homes and families left without power or water, I wanted to do whatever I could to help,” Thomas J. Henry stated. He is also grateful for the collaboration with Coca-Cola Puerto Rico Bottlers and President, Alberto de la Cruz, who helped in the process.

The personal initiative of Thomas J. Henry has transformed into a collaborative effort with the local Government, Community and the Department of Education coming together to help achieve a sense of normalcy for children in the midst of a disaster zone. Safe locations have been identified to install the tents, close to the community in order to help parents and students feel calm.

Leyda E. Cruz Berrios (Special Assistant to the Secretary of Education) commented in the press conference, “When we heard about Thomas J. Henry and Coca-Cola, we were filled with excitement. I remember when we finished setting up a tent in Guayanilla, in the Asunción School, the teachers began hugging and crying”
