Shriners Helping Masons – Puerto Rico

A message from Imperial Potentate Gary Bergenske

As you are aware, Puerto Rico recently experienced heavy hurricane activity and massive flooding. Much of the island was decimated after Hurricane Maria hit. The Grand Lodge of Puerto Rico placed an appeal through the Masonic Service Association for disaster relief. In response, the MSA established a disaster relief fund for Puerto Rico, with all donations received to be transferred directly to The Grand Lodge of Puerto Rico for distribution to those in need. 

Here’s how you can give:

Make checks payable to “MSA Disaster Relief Fund” and send them to:

Masonic Service Association
3905 National Drive, Suite 280
Burtonsville, MD 20866 

Please write on the memo portion of the check, "Puerto Rico Disaster Appeal" to be sure that the money is specifically designated for the relief of Puerto Rico Masons.

Yours in faith,


Gary J. Bergenske, Imperial Potentate
