Truckload of Finger Lakes hope for Puerto Rico

The 28.5-foot tractor trailer parked roadside on Route 332, the one draped with a neon yellow and red “Hope for Puerto Rico” sign, is hard to miss.

It’s there for a reason.

More than 70 days after Hurricane Maria plowed through Puerto Rico, an estimated one of every 10 of its residents still lack potable water and they are still scraping for food. The island’s power and telecommunications infrastructure remain in a state of chaos and the death toll continues to rise.

But Calvary Chapel of the Finger Lakes has boots on the ground in the U.S. territory, thanks to its sister church, Calvary Chapel of Puerto Rico.

And Ontario County residents can be part of that relief effort already in motion through donations of canned or dry food, select paper products or financial support.

The effort, which originated with CCFL Senior Pastor Scott Gallatin, is churchwide and communitywide, involving all ages from children to teens and adults, said CCFL Pastor Tony Falcione.
