DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - South Florida continues to support Puerto Rico following Hurricane Fiona.

Miami-Dade County partnering with Global Empowerment Mission to accept donations for relief efforts.

Michael Capponi, the founder of the organization, mentioned the kind of donations they need.

“Nonperishable goods, at this point, are key and obviously cleaning supplies, sleeping bags, tarps; a lot of roofs did fly off,” said Capponi. “Then you have to pay to transport goods, you know, at $5,000 – $7,000 a container. It doesn’t sound like a, lot but when you have to send 50 containers, it’s a lot.”

Supplies and monetary donations will be accepted to benefit those affected by the storm.

Three drop-off locations are set up in the county to receive these donations.

Miami-Dade’s Mayor Daniella Levine Cava is urging the community to come together in support of Puerto Rico.

“We know that the difficulty and suffering in these hurricanes can unleash devastation, and I know that we will come together to support all of those who are most in need, so I ask and encourage all of our residents to please give what you can,” she said.

Donations can be dropped off starting Friday and through Oct. 3.
