As Puerto Rico continues to struggle in the wake of Hurricane Maria, more help is on the way courtesy of New York Yankees great Jorge Posada and his wife.

Posada has filled up a Fed-Ex cargo plane with 155,000 pounds of goods to send to the island. The plane will head from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to western Puerto Rico on Monday.

NBC 6’s Sheli Muniz is traveling with Posada. Earlier this month, Posada and NBC 6 chief meteorologist John Morales went to the island to help with humanitarian efforts.

Meanwhile, roughly half of the residents on the island are finally able to access clean water, while only about a fifth can actually turn on their lights. A little over half have cell service in their neighborhoods.
