(September 23, 2017)
“Festival de El Grito De Lares” 2017 transformed into a community relief effort for the people of Puerto Rico — one of many held throughout NYC. The drive organized by El Maestro, Inc., Healthy Minds In Healthy Bodies Youth Program and other local civic groups was held at the historic strip along Vyse Avenue between 167th Street & Home Street.

Fernando Ponce Laspina, Director of El Maestro, Inc. spoke profoundly about the grave nature that the Puerto Rican people on the island are facing. He implored those present to continue helping those souls on the island who in many cases have lost everything they owned.
