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.”

In particular, supplies being sought include:

Baby formula

Baby wipes


Bottled water

Canned milk

Canned, non-perishable foods


Dish soap

Extension cords
