Community Bands Together to Provide Support to Hurricane Victims in Puerto Rico
Posted on: October 16, 2017
A Superior Air Conditioning Company is launching a supply drive for those impacted by recent Hurricanes in Puerto Rico. They are partnering with Sponsors of Hope and Good Samaritan Shipping Ministries to fill shipping containers full of supplies that are desperately needed at this time in Puerto Rico. “This project is close to home for me” says A Superior Air Conditioning’s General Manager Payton Davidson, “I have family living in Puerto Rico and it has been challenging to get them any of the supplies they need. When I heard of this opportunity, I couldn’t help but pull our team together to aid in the relief efforts.”
The goal is to fill three shipping containers with water, generators, gas stoves, sanitary napkins, diapers, quick drying towels, clothes, non-perishable foods, and other items- see attached list. While the time frame to fill these containers is short, they have already begun to see a great response from the community. The biggest challenge of donating towards disaster relief is getting the collected items where they need to go. In this case, Good Samaritan Shipping Ministries out of Port St. Lucie, Florida is helping get the items directly to the Port of Mayaguez. Sponsors of Hope will handle customs and distribution of the items from there. Sponsors of Hope works in Puerto Rico, as well as Bay County, and has been kept up to speed on the conditions of the community where these donations are going.
Supplies can be dropped at A Superior Air Conditioning Company between 8:00 am-4:30 pm Monday through Friday. They will be taking donations –until November 3rd. If large amounts of supplies can be donated but need to be picked up, please call 850-258-3225 to coordinate pick up. Monetary donations will also be accepted to put towards the efforts of Good Samaritan Shipping Ministries.
