Rivera explained his decision to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer.
“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.”
Rodrigue also noted that “Rivera said his family in Puerto Rico has all been accounted for.”
