According to the streaming service, Roc Nation, along with Governor Cuomo, is collecting much-needed supplies for the devastated island. In the wake of the natural disaster, the people of Puerto Rico have been left without running water, electricity and access to communication. Through Tidal's intiative, the company intends on filling a cargo plane with disaster relief supplies by Oct. 5.
New Yorkers can drop off approved supplies at multiple locations, while those outside the New York area are encouraged to make donations via the Tidal website. Tidal has set up drop-off locations available between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day until Oct. 5 in Albany, Syracuse, Yonkers, Brooklyn and elsewhere. For a complete list of drop-off locations, click here.
The project, set to take place until Oct. 17, has plans on sending multiple cargo planes to Puerto Rico. Currently, the following items are being accepted for donations:
- portable lanterns
- baby wipes
- cases of water
- feminine hygiene products
In addition to the cargo plane initiative, Tidal is also hosting its third annual Tidal X: Brooklyn charity concert on Oct. 17. Hov joins DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Vic Mensa and many more who are scheduled to appear. All net proceeds from the concert will be donated to disaster relief and recovery organizations.
