polo villas for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico
A Puerto Rican restaurant in North Hollywood is collecting funds and everything from baby diapers and clothes to blankets and water for hurricane victims still struggling on the devastated island.
Mofongos, named after the popular Puerto Rican dish of plantains, is gathering truckloads of supplies for people needing food, water and everyday items like toothbrushes or toilet paper.
Supplies for relief victims were being gathered into care packages, which have a “little bit of everything,” as one volunteer named Steven Buitrago told KTLA.
Still, the restaurant needs help loading up all the crates of donations and is still looking for more items to send over to hurricane victims.
Items specifically requested by the relief effort include: containers or totes with secure lids, new baby clothes, baby supplies (diapers, wipes, etc.),
shampoo, bar soaps, toothpaste, feminine care products, candles, flashlights, batteries, air mattresses, shoes, rain clothes and ponchos, umbrellas and all travel size care products.
