We at the Hartford Foundation are deeply saddened by the devastation in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Texas, Florida and other areas caused by recent natural disasters. Many Greater Hartford residents have families and friends in these areas and are concerned about their safety. We’ve created a list of resources and ways to give, and we urge everyone to consider helping those affected in any way you can. Please stay tuned for more guidance, resources and ways to engage people in the relief and rebuilding efforts.
