Homeless teenager helping Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico

Christoper Rodriguez with the assistance of Chris Davis and Jose Aguilar who are U S military veterans from Arizona who have volunteered their services of helping the victims of Hurricane Maria that struck Puerto Rico in the city of Anasco Puerto Rico this weekend by giving them care packages, Rodriguez, 19 who is homeless since he left his home at age 16 sleeping in an alley in the city plaza has found his calling making care packages for people in his community as well as the neighboring areas of the island. Rodriguez rode out Hurricane Maria in a taxi terminal. His endless work of helping out his fellow countrymen in his native Puerto Rico with the assistance of Aguilar and Davis as far as I know has not made the national news in America. The best part of this story is that the people in Anasco Puerto Rico is that Rodriguez is doing his part to help people in his community that are also homeless due to the tragic events in his homeland. Too bad the news media like to discuss the dark side of the problems in the island involving the world leaders instead of reporting how people are helping each other in a time of need.

Rodriguez is poor and owns practically nothing at all. Yet, he gives freely of himself, to those in need! What a wonderful example, of what caring is all about

Thank you for sharing this story with us. All should know of the work this fine young man has done to help so many. The news does not focus all the good that is done in the world, and I feel that is inexcusable.

I agree with you that the media just likes to cram bad news stories most of the time in the television news.

I guess someone else is funding the care packages? It's great the guys are doing what they can to help.

Something the news media decides to overlook which is a shame.
