ORLANDO, Fla. - More than two weeks after landfall, Puerto Rico is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria.
From 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., people can drop off any of the items listed below at the parking lot of Calvary Orlando Church, 1199 Clay Street, Winter Park.
And one by one, people drove up to the parking lot to give back.
"After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean , Florida Hospital has so many employees that have family ties and friends and connections to the island, that we felt like we had to be involved and had to respond," said Monty Jacobs, director of global missions.
All donations will be taken to the island and distrubuted by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency.
The requested items include:
Canned or Powdered Milk
Dried Fruits and Nuts
Flashlights & Batteries
Toothpaste & Tooth Brushes
Feminine Hygiene Products
OTC Medications (aspirin, allergy medication, vitamins)
Florida Hospital is partnering with the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists for this relief effort. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency will distribute the collected items in Puerto Rico.
