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 Guns.com.
“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.
