Every Drop Counts Challenge: H20 Heroes
Since we launched Operation Agua to bring filters and purifiers to Puerto Rico, we’ve heard from members who want to fundraise with their classrooms, schools, workplaces and local unions. In response to our members’ interest, we're excited to announce the Operation Agua Every Drop Counts Challenge.
The Every Drop Counts Challenge is a powerful way to engage your students, colleagues and communities in Operation Agua’s life-changing work.

"I could not believe the devastation I saw on my aid trip, especially around the city of Comerio in central Puerto Rico. The greatest need of the people, which unfortunately continues today, was for clean drinking water....The main reason I chose to donate our proceeds to Operation Agua is because I trust labor unions, as they have a long history of not only helping the working class but also organizing to help people in need. I am excited to see our donation help the people of Puerto Rico!"
Elder Services of Merrimack Valley
The devastation of Hurricane Maria hit home for our staff here at Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley (ESMV). Many of the people we serve and our own staff have family in Puerto Rico. We wanted desperately to try to help their families and other residents of Puerto Rico, so we launched the ESMV Cares Puerto Rico Fund.
