“I have family members who have been living off of a loaf of bread for the last week and a half,” Migdalia Otero told Hall. “It makes me want to cry now, because I know that we’re eating here every single day. We have all the bare necessities.”

Truckloads of supplies have already been sent, and the group is continuing to collect – not only for the victims in Puerto Rico, but for those in Florida and Mexico, as well.
