Amazon Flies Plane Full of Supplies to Puerto Rico – The Good News
The plane was loaded up with supplies that were donated by Amazon and its customers.
Yesterday, a cargo plane was filled with everything from diapers, baby formula, bug spray, towels, tarps, tents and blankets. Amazon coordinated with Puerto Rican officials to find out what items were needed the most.
Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos posted a message of thanks to his Twitter and Instagram pages.
They’re not the first tech company to do help, either – Tesla sent solar-powered battery systems to the island last week, Facebook sent in a team of technicians to set up telecommunications, and AT&T and T-Mobile set up sites where family members could contact people on the island.
