Jan. 19, 2018
SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) — A Maine couple whose son died in a cargo ship accident have delivered more than 30,000 pounds of supplies to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
The Portland Press Herald reports Deb and Robin Roberts delivered food, water and personal hygiene products to the stricken island in December. The Wilton couple's son, Michael Holland, died in 2016 when the cargo ship El Faro sank in Hurricane Joaquin while sailing from Jacksonville to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The Roberts said in a statement that it was a "rewarding experience" helping hurricane victims in memory of their son.
The Roberts collected supplies last November.
