Two Suffolk County police officers recently traveled to help Hurricane Ian victims in Puerto Rico and Florida. Police officer John Wright and Yasmin Gallant both took time off from work and headed to the hurricane-ravaged communities to roll up their sleeves and pitch in.

Officer Wright joined Jibaritos with Troops, a national non-profit that helps people in their time of need. Wright traveled to Fort Meyers, where he assisted Jibaritos with Troops in delivering supplies and helping the community with the cleanup effort.

Officer Gallant joined the organization in Puerto Rico, where she delivered all of the supplies and aid collected by the Suffolk County community to the people of Puerto Rico.

Gallant had the special privilege of meeting the governor of Puerto Rico, where she worked with police officers in San Juan to deliver supplies and goods to an orphanage in the commonwealth.
