12/19/17 | When Hurricane Maria struck the island of Puerto Rico on September 20, it left 3.4 million residents without power and it was reported that the storm claimed 64 lives. Three months later, much of the island remains without power and the death toll is now projected to be more than 1,000. As residents of the island continue to rebuild, the need for basic supplies is still a challenge and one that resonated with many South Florida residents, including the students of JWU’s North Miami Campus.
