PEN ARGYL, Pa. - It's been nearly three months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico and much of the island is still a disaster zone.
Slate Belt-based group American Way Disaster Relief recently returned from a trip where they helped distribute much needed food, water, and supplies.
"They're Americans, they're proud to be Americans, they fly the American flag....they just want the same kind of help,” said founder Nick Russo.
American Way Disaster Relief was founded after Russo began collecting supplies for the victims of hurricanes Harvey and Irma
Russo said another team of volunteers from American Way Disaster Relief are heading back to Puerto Rico on Dec. 9.
You can find more information about the organization on its Facebook.
Russo said donations can be sent directly to Puerto Rico at HC 2 Box 11201 Vieques, PR 00765 or you can buy something from their Amazon Wish List.
