ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- In late December, the Rochester Housing Authority estimated that nearly 800 families from Puerto Rico have relocated to Rochester.
"They came from a very warm climate down in Puerto Rico, and they don't come with those things, naturally. So certainly with all of the influx we've had, there's a lot of need for a lot of people to keep warm, keep protected in the environment here in Rochester, which is very fluid," said Dan Marcellus, President, CEO of SkyPort IT.
For every coat someone donated, SkyPort awarded them a $10 coffee gift card.
On Friday, the company delivered more than 70 coats to the Ibero-American Action League, an agency which assists evacuees.
