BANDAID 4 PUERTO RICO

 

The devastation of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico was felt here in Central Florida, with many of our own associates having family and close friends on the island.  In the spirit of charity, local business owner Yohanci Santana of Divicious Deli & Coffee Shop coordinated a mass donation at her location in downtown Lakeland (they really do have THE. VERY. BEST. Cubans and Reubens. In the world.) 

 

Our HR Generalist Mairaliz Sorrells worked with Santana and fellow Boring associates to collect donations in the form of bottles of water, clothing, diapers, batteries, toiletries, medicines, baby formula, protein bars, dog food, bed sheets, towels and toys.  The supplies grew in Maira's office until the donation deadline October 5th, when VP of Service and Facilities Mike Phillips and Delivery Driver Kerry Ellis helped deliver the supplies to Divicious so they could be shipped to Puerto Rico.

Residents don't even know where to start picking up the pieces

 

"Hurricane Maria was such a devastating hurricane that will never be forgotten," said Sorrells.  "The devastation that occurred touched many people's souls and many people wanted to help in any way they could.  I am so grateful and thankful for all the donations and help received for Bandaid 4 Puerto Rico.  I am so blessed to work with such gracious and giving people and I thank you very much!"
