The hospital is hosting a community relief drive until 2 p.m. Sunday at Calvary Orlando Church. "We're grateful for his leadership, for his faith in the efforts that we are doing and of course his continued support for the people of Puerto Rico", he said. "We're just people trying to help people". After unloading the cars, they organize the donations, which range from cans of food and baby diapers, to toiletries and cases of water.

"Puerto Rico has suffered the impact of two major hurricanes, and as a result now they're facing life-threatening situations".

"Many of these officers have family, friends and loved ones on the island, making this mission not only an important professional response, but a deeply personal one as they bring their skills, empathy and compassion to those still left suffering in the wake of a devastating hurricane season", the Boston Police Department said.

"There are certain areas of Puerto Rico that are unreached".

The donations are coming in from all over, including a large van packed with supplies from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
