Half of that donation will go toward the Hispanic Federation's Unidos Disaster Relief and Recovery program to develop long-term needs for Puerto Rico.

The other half will go to the Flamboyan Arts Fund , which focuses on continuing Puerto Rico's arts and culture heritage.

The U.S. territory continues to recover after the island was devastated by Maria in September 2017.
