After it was ravaged by the devastating Hurricane Maria, most of Puerto Rico is still without power, while food, water and fuel are scarce, according to various reports.
In Alpharetta, students at a local high school and the surrounding community are trying to do their part in helping the victims of Maria.
On Wednesday, Alpharetta High School started collecting cases of bottled water to send to Puerto Rico. The donation effort will continue through Friday.
To donate to the cause, folks can drop off cases of water Thursday and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the high school’s car pool lane. A volunteer will be there to accept donations.
Donations of water can also be dropped off at Nothing Bundt Cake at 5230 Windward Parkway from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on those days.
The effort to help victims in Puerto Rico is being led by Alpharetta High School's student council and Spanish club. A flier says that monetary donations can be given online at www.unidosporpuertorico.com.
