DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Dec. 15, 2017 - PRLog -- Dennis Burns, CEO of United Way Volusia-Flagler Counties, is pleased to announce his team has facilitated the recent delivery of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria relief supplies.

The donations came from New Jersey resident Steve Humphrey, who drove the supplies down in a large truck from the northeast and delivered them to UWVFC.

The supplies included walkers for the elderly, diapers, water, mattresses, children's beds, pet food and toys, new clothing, backpacks filled with school supplies, microwave ovens, portable air conditioners, toys, household items, toiletries, canned food and medical items.

The backpacks were delivered to Friendship Elementary and Heritage Middle School in Deltona to aid in the influx of Puerto Rican residents, who evacuated their country because of Hurricane Maria.

All other items were donated to the Neighborhood Center of West Volusia to distribute to other organizations.

"Sometimes the most incredible gifts are those that are unexpected and without request," said Burns. "What a wonderful surprise to have all these supplies gathered for our community in such a critical time of need and we couldn't be more grateful to Mr. Humphrey for delivering them to our door."
