Armando Porras is a Spanish Teacher for students experiencing the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. To Armando, cancelling school for the pending storm at first seemed like a good chance for a break. But (of course) it wasn’t. The storm hit harder than expected and Armando went from a full-time teacher to a full-time volunteer in disaster cleanup. In our interview, Armando contrasts the Hurricane’s effects on the rich and the poor–both of which he has a close relationship with.
We also talk with Rich Woodruff, the Utah Regional Director of Communications for the American Red Cross. He gives us some pointers on how we can contribute to the relief efforts of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
