[image-1]After Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, locals Melody Shemtov, Emily Cox, and Rachel Inabinette decided to coordinate a relief drive for Puerto Ricans in critical need.

[content-1]All Home Team BBQ locations, The Daily, Butcher and Bee, and East Cooper Family Pharmacy will be collecting the following items now through Monday evening:
baby food and formula, bug spray (no aerosol), baby and adult diapers, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, feminine products, trash bags, over the counter medication, bottled water, batteries (no lithium), dog and cat food, umbrellas, and anything solar powered.

Local moving company College Hunks Hauling Junk has donated a vehicle and a driver to deliver the donations to the Medshare distribution center in Atlanta to be
sent to Puerto Rico via private plane.
