  • Worship Puerto Rico a project under  the non-profit organization Worship Inc. started in November 2017 when St. Johns AME in Raleigh, NC set out to fund a recovery effort to help Puerto Rico rebuild after Hurricane Maria devastated the island and its economy. They gave the funds to Cinnamon Ruth Leggett who then distributed the funds to those who were in need in Puerto Rico after taking a self funded trip to Puerto Rico to assess the needs of the people.  She then organized a movement called Worship Puerto Rico in hopes to continue recovery efforts for years to come.

    Worship Puerto Rico is in its fourth year of existence with a focus on preparedness and distribution of emergency book-bags called “salva mochilas”.

    Multiple trips have been organized to build hope through service and “love in action”, stated Christina Shivers, 2021 year team member, and every March a team of 12-14 will return to Puerto Rico continuing community efforts to distribute the life saving book-bags. 

    “We are not heading to Puerto Rico to bring help, we are heading to Puerto Rico to build hope!” -Cinnamon Ruth Leggett

  • Yearly WPR provides 100 families in Guánica and Guayanilla, Puerto Rico with emergency back-packs (salva mochilas) that include life saving emergency supplies such as duct tape, rope, solar powered flashlights, trash bags, tooth brushes, toothpaste, sunscreen, bug spray, cold packs and power packs for phone charging. The back-packs are water proof and keep the elements safe and dry until put into use. Each bag contains a how to guide which describes the non-conventional use of the items in the bags, items that can be added to the bags and a personal story from the team member that gave the bag. 

    Additionally, WPR will provide education and resources for the following: 

    • Disaster preparedness in natural disaster
    • First responder and CPR training
    • Health Screenings including blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, temperature and oxygen saturation.
    • Nursing advice and education
    • Hospital mapping and the best use of local healthcare resources.
    • Psychosocial community resources for mental health.
