Lemonis flying supplies to Puerto Rico


UNITED STATES — Gander Outdoors CEO Marcus Lemonis, who also operates Camping World and stars in CNBC’s “The Profit,” told his Twitter followers he intends to charter a cargo plane filled with supplies to Puerto Rico, reported

“In addition to money … we want to collect things we believe are needed,” he said Tuesday. “It’s very difficult to find out what people need in Puerto Rico. I couldn’t be more frustrated by the lack of news coverage on social media … I don’t want to see any pictures. I don’t want to read any horror stories. What I do want to hear is ideas and solutions of things that could be sent down there in addition to money.”

More than 3 million residents remain without power Wednesday, one week after Hurricane Maria — the most powerful storm to strike Puerto Rico in nearly a century — drenched the island in more than three feet of rain and killed at least 16 people. The availability of basic necessities — like clean water, food and gas — dwindles by the hour.

  1. Lemonis should stay in Puerto Rico. He could tell the people of PR that if they voted for Trump his rescue supplies will not be provided to them. Of course, good luck finding a Puerto Rican who voted for Trump.
