During a time of great need, Sunnyside State Senator Michael Gianaris is coming through for the victims of Puerto Rico and Mexico.

The pol collected and donated items to help those recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma, as well as the victims of Mexico’s seismic and fatal earthquake.

The materials were donated to Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., who sponsored the relief drive. Donated items include batteries, diapers, feminine hygiene products, non-perishable food and cases of water.

“The residents of Puerto Rico and Mexico are hurting. I am deeply saddened by the destruction and damage that occurred,” Gianaris said. “It is up to us to help them get back on their feet and rebuild.”
