HAMMONTON, N.J. -

An Atlantic County organization is helping bring relief to victims in Puerto Rico ravaged by Hurricane Maria.

Over the weekend, the Puerto Rican Civic Association of Hammonton, N.J., filled up a 52-foot tractor trailer with donated supplies and sent it on its way to bring much needed relief to millions still stranded on the island.

Hurricane Maria made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane nearly two weeks ago and many here in South Jersey have been doing their part to help in the recovery effort.

The Puerto Rican Civic Association of Hammonton plans to send another truckload of supplies and will be accepting donations through October 22nd.
