"What better way to channel that energy than to do something for Puerto Rico", said Medina. Puerto Rico has been left with a humanitarian crisis after sitting through the Category 5 hurricane for over thirty hours.

The donations are coming in from all over, including a large van packed with supplies from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said Wednesday the state was sending 69 officers in response to a request for help from Puerto Rico's leaders.

In less than two weeks, Medina and the rest of North Carolina for Puerto Rico collected more all of the donations.
