Tidal to Send 200,000 Pounds of Supplies to Hurricane-Stricken Puerto Rico

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, which has devastated Puerto Rico and left much of the island without power or drinking water, Tidal announced today that in partnership with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort, it has launched an initiative aimed at filling a 200,000-pound cargo plane full of hurricane-relief supplies to the beleaguered island.

The first plane is expected to leave on October 7 and carry 200,000 pounds of batteries, flashlights, portable lanterns, diapers, baby wipes, cases of water and feminine hygiene products.

The company is calling on the global community to help with the humanitarian crisis affecting Puerto Rico – those in New York can visit one of 19 drop off locations across the state (listed below) to bring supplies; monetary donations are being accepted at TIDAL.com/PuertoRico.

According to a press release, artists including Fat Joe and Romeo Santos along with radio personality Angie Martinez will be at the New York drop off points helping collect, sort and send items that have been donated.

“My heart goes out to every single individual that has suffered as a result of this Hurricane,” said Fat Joe. “Watching from the sidelines has been heartbreaking – let’s fill that plane and help our brothers and sisters! Even the smallest contribution will go a long way.”

The company is providing hurricane relief through its third annual Tidal X: Brooklyn http://tidal.com/us  on Oct. 17, headlined by Tidal owner Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Kaskade and featuring many others — 100% of ticket proceeds will be donated to those affected by natural disasters including Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria and the recent earthquakes in Mexico.

Donation locations:  The drop-off sites will accept donations every day between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. All items must be unopened and in their original packaging.
