This means they now have a truck to transport, and access to planes to fly these donations to Puerto Rico.

ABC11 first told you about this relief effort Friday.

"It's been overwhelming. People were coming from all over to just deliver what they can," said owner Randy Hernandez. "I have people to come almost every day, can I come back tomorrow, can I bring something else, what is needed, what do you think I should bring? It's been an overwhelming response."

This Saturday, they're having a donation drive at 1210 Front St. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be DJs entertaining and food from the restaurant. They also need volunteers to help collect, sort and package the donations for transport to Puerto Rico.
