When Pastor Irv Gammon, Florence Congregational Church, Florence, MA, saw Puerto Rican children drinking brown, murky water from a river on the news in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, he had to do something. Pastor Gammon and Rabbi Riqi Kosovske, Beit Ahavah Synagogue, raised $10,500 to purchase over 200 LifeStraw Family Water Purifiers for families in Puerto Rico.
