Since she arrived back in the States, Amy has been dedicated to using her professional network and skills to raise awareness about the island and provide aid that is still desperately needed. She is volunteer member of ViequesLove, a grassroots organization formed the day after the hurricane to help the island recover.

Our amazing coffee sponsor this month is Subculture Coffee. They have a great story of their own. “March 3, 2014 was the day Subculture Coffee was born. It’s a story of two local guys, Rodney and Sean, who believed in two simple things: the coffee culture and this city.
The day we opened, and every day since, has consisted of roasting and brewing coffee the best we know how in a space that allows people from all walks of life to connect. We strongly believe in fostering a community of diversity and expression, one that brings soul to our city.”
