Via News Channel 5, the Cleveland Puerto Rican community is gathering and soliciting items to send to the U.S. island territory ravaged by Hurricane Maria.

The Clark-Fulton neighborhood is Cleveland's Little Puerto Rico. It is one of the nation's most densely populated Puerto Rican neighborhoods. There, at the San Lorenzo Club — 3415 Clark Ave. — donations will be accepted through Sunday at 8 p.m. Canned goods, baby food, clothing, water, non-perishable items, diapers, and pet supplies will be accepted. (Basically everything except cash.)

According to the latest reports, at least six people have died in the hurricane and its aftermath. Many more fatalities are expected with widespread power outages and additional rain on the horizon.
