This week Makerspace Forsyth will be collecting donations to send to Puerto Rico in light of the recent hurricane that devastated the island. The entire island was left without water, power or cell phone service so the need is immediate. We have confirmed a cargo plane to transport all donated goods. The plane is scheduled to leave Atlanta on October 1st, so we are requesting all donations be delivered between tomorrow and Friday.
