Members of the Delaware State Police Community Outreach Unit, along with representatives from the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, formed a convoy of trucks and trailers bound for the Port of Wilmington on Oct. 20, loaded with supplies received during a two-week donation drive benefiting the people of Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

Upon arrival, the convoy was met by a team of about 20 Port of Wilmington employees who off-loaded and packaged 32 pallets of donated supplies before loading them onto a cargo ship bound for Puerto Rico.

The donation drive, which ran Oct. 4-18, was a collaborative effort between the office of Gov. John Carney, DEMA, the Delaware State Police, the Delaware Citizens Corps and in conjunction with the International Longshoremen’s Association of Delaware and the Port of Wilmington.
