There’s no doubt about it, all of us want to help our friends and family in Puerto Rico, but how? Here’s a simple way to help that will go a very long way!
Mix 105.1 has become a location drop for a couple of badly needed items for those affected in Puerto Rico. Some of those items include manual can openers and vitamins. If you can donate either item, please feel free to bring it by the CBS RADIO offices located at 1800 Pembrook Drive in Orlando, 32810. The fliers below list other items and you are more than welcome to donate at the Florida Hospital drop-off location in Kissimmee. At Mix, we are specifically trying to collect the manual can openers and kids/adult vitamins.
Hats off to Florida Hospital for putting this together once again! 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 list of needed items was created by Florida Hospital emergency physician teams who have been on the island since September, in conjunction with response agencies and health care organizations. A third team of doctors continues to provide critical care and assistance to local physicians, while also assessing the island’s overall health needs.
