NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Mariano Rivera, the Yankees great who lives in White Plains, is coming in relief for Puerto Rico.
Rivera and his wife, Clara, are donating supplies that will be shipped by The Mariano Rivera Foundation to help with the recovery.
“It’s always a blessing when you can help others,” Rivera said at the church Refugio de Esperanza in New Rochelle. “Together we can accomplish a lot of things, and together we can build up Puerto Rico. When there is this need, we need to step up.”
Spearheaded by volunteers from the Department of Social Services, the countywide Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico drive will continue at least through November.
In particular, supplies being sought include:
Canned and dry pet food
Canned, non-perishable foods
Ground fault protectors
