What Up Westport? Help Puerto Rico

As Puerto Rico pleads for help, Westport acts.

Tomorrow, (Sunday, October 1) What Up Westport — the popular Facebook group — has organized a drive to collect much-needed items for the hurricane-battered island.

Hurricane Maria’s floodwaters have receded. But the situation in Puerto Rico remains dire. This is the mayor of San Juan, helping people while wading through sewage-filled water with a bullhorn.

Supplies can be dropped off from 3-5 p.m. at the Westport Library upper lot (near the Levitt Pavilion). They’ll be shipped quickly, through a New York relief organization.
