In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy of service, the Puerto Rico Platoons will be supporting the National Parks Service in building a ADA boardwalk to La Garita del Diablo. This boardwalk will support locals and tourist by educating them on the history of Fort San Cristobal and the legend of La Garita del Diablo.
The Puerto Rico Platoons will support by completing a multiply phase project to include the removed of the overgrown weeds and grass, expanding the walk way to meet ADA standards; laying of sand and gravel; and finally the building of a boardwalk to support visitors in accessing this incredible site.
We will also start some painting of the La Perla Community at the Community Center to give new bright colors and start the process of integration into the Community to help any way we can.
Please join us in supporting this historical site and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Meeting Location will be the Carmelo Anthony Court at La Perla.
“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
