UNIDOS POR PUERTO RICO: De San Antonio Con Amor

La Sociedad Herencia Puertorriqueña se solidariza por este medio con nuestros hermanos y hermanas en la Isla de Puerto Rico, nuestras familias, nuestras amistades y toda la población afectada. 

Aunque lejos físicamente de la Isla seguimos la trayectoria de María segundo a segundo y ahora seguimos el camino arduo de recuperación. 

Somos un pueblo fuerte, positivo, que siempre dice presente y ayuda a sus hermanos necesitados. Estamos alerta ante los pasos de recuperación para extender nuestra mano y ayudar proactivamente.

Les mantendremos informados sobre nuestros próximos pasos. Mientras tanto, cultivemos la paz y la esperanza en nuestros corazones con agradecimiento y mucha fe.

Le agradecemos todo el apoyo que nos han dando.

¡Muchísimas Gracias!


Sociedad Herencia Puertorriqueña (SHP) is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit woman’s organization founded in 1984, in San Antonio, with the objective of promoting and maintaining the Puerto Rican culture and traditions alive in the city. The organization also promotes personal and career development through scholarships offered to high school students interested in pursuing a higher education. The SHP is also committed to supporting the community at large by participating in civic endeavors in the city.

In 1988, our now traditional biennial Festival de Puerto Rico was established in commemoration of the discovery of Puerto Rico in 1493. This cultural event is now expected and welcomed as it brings together families from all across Texas in the spirit of celebration showcasing our rich culture, traditional art, food, and music. At times, musicians and artisans come directly from Puerto Rico to share their distinctive talents.

Other cultural events offered by SHP include art exhibits, piano concerts, presentation of folklore dance troupes and concerts with various performers, as well as, distinguished authors that come directly from the island.
