Clemente Museum Taking Donations For Puerto Rico

Millions of people are currently struggling with a lack of food, water and electricity after Hurricane Maria destroyed Puerto Rico.

So what does Pittsburgh do... Collect items and money like Roberto would have.

This Sunday (Oct 1st) The Clemente Museum in Lawrenceville with the help of UPMC and the Restaurant Depot are collecting items and taking donations from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the people of Puerto Rico. 

Items that are needed most include bottled water, batteries, diapers, first aid supplies and feminine hygiene products.  

Donations can be dropped off this Sunday in the Restaurant Depot parking lot at 100 35th St. in Lawrenceville.

When you come down you can also take a tour of the Clemente museum by making a $21 donation in honor of Clemente's uniform number, with the money going toward hurricane relief efforts. 

In a statement Mayor Peduto said "Roberto Clemente gave his life to support others. Pittsburgh owes it to Roberto and his family to do all we can to help the people of Puerto  Rico"
