Florida Hospital hosts second Hurricane Relief Drive for Puerto Rico

Updated:

Florida Hospital, WFTV-Channel 9, and 107.3 Solo Exitos invite Central Floridians to assist with Puerto Rico relief efforts for a second time by donating critically needed items such as canned food and baby supplies at a collection drive. 

The first event was so successful that several 45-foot shipping containers with supplies were taken to Puerto Rico by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, and the organization hopes to fill several more. The shipping containers will be converted into housing in Puerto Rico. 

The second Blessings for Puerto Rico donation relief drive will take place on Sunday, October 29th, at Florida Hospital Kissimmee.

From 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the community can drop off any of the items listed below, at the parking lot of Florida Hospital Kissimmee, 2450 N. Orange Blossom Trail, Kissimmee.
