On Monday morning, Nov. 6, the Georgia Chapter of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) is deploying disaster relief supplies, en route for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

According to a recent press release, “the convoy will transport 147 pallets of items specified as current needs,” all of which were collected during various donation drives in September and October. Supplies will be transported by “a multi-agency convoy of vehicles” to Orlando, Fla. first.

The items were collected during donation drives at Legacy Ford, Atlanta Motor Speedway, and New Life Church, according to the press release.
