Return to Puerto Rico


Alum Ben Abrams '11, a junior at Hofstra University, chose to spend his spring break on a Hofstra trip to the town of Salinas in Puerto Rico to help with the hurricane recovery effort.

Ben remains in touch with the friends he made down there on the 8th grade TPS trip and has been looking for an opportunity to help out since the storms happened. He and his Hofstra team lived for a week at the municipal baseball stadium since that was where they had power and water. Ben wasn't able to see his old friends from his TPS trip but was able to speak to them by phone. In the group photo below, Ben is in the front row, third from the left.
