Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera is donating $50,000 to the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
“As I said, whatever we can do to help out, I think it would be greatly appreciated,” Rivera said. “(They need) food, water and electricity right now. Those that don’t have generators are really struggling up there. Getting fresh water and food obviously is the other concern, and then fuel for the generators and stuff like that.”
Rivera’s father is from Puerto Rico and he said all his family members on the island have been accounted for in the wake of the storm.
