In September 2017, the island of Puerto Rico was decimated by Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 storm unleashing winds in excess of 150 mph. The damage was catastrophic resulting in nearly 3000 deaths. By most accounts, it will take years for the island to fully recover including an entire rebuilding of power grids, water systems, roads and roofs.
As part of our social conscience mission, we are proud to partner with PRoTechos, a non-profit corporation based in Puerto Rico, (www.protechos.org), founded with the dual mission of rebuilding damaged roofs in underserved communities while providing residents with basic carpentry training, addressing both housing needs and the shortage of skilled construction workers in Puerto Rico.
Wepa will be donating 5% of annual net profits and we invite you to join the cause by going to their website, learning more and donating to this very worthy cause.
