“The community responded overwhelmingly to the call made by community organizers and in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the U.S Virgin Islands,” said Representative Luis Arroyo. “But we are not done yet, there is still aid that needs to be transported to Puerto Rico,” “We thank our brothers and sisters from the Rainbow Push Coalition and the Resurrected Life Church International for their commitment and support with those affected by the Hurricane”

At the press conference Reverend Jackson expressed “We could not have gotten the supplies here without FedEx,” Rev. Jackson said. “I want to thank FedEx for their generosity and their dedicated team members who made this mission possible. FedEx has been magnificent.”

Since Hurricane Maria hit, FedEx has made more than 100 flights into Puerto Rico, delivering some 12 million pounds of relief supplies.

“People should be eternally grateful to FedEx for its commitment,” Rev. Jackson said.
