A Word From HOLA Regarding Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy

Due to the destructive effects of Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy, the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) is without electrical power. As a result, the staff of HOLA has not been in the office these past couple of days and will not be in the office the rest of this week.

We at HOLA would like to thank the first responders, firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians, national troops, utility repair crews, transit workers, newscasters and volunteers who took care of the city during the storm and who are helping to restore the city to normalcy (well, as normal as New York City gets). Our thoughts go out to those who suffered losses during this horrible and tragic ordeal.

To our members, friends and people in our community, we at HOLA know that, to a certain extent, the show must go on. To that point, we will try to keep you up to date on any news through this blog, our Facebook page and our Twitter site
