    (Published Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017)

    A semi truck is filled with emergency supplies, and it's headed to Florida to help out those affect by Hurricane Irma.

    The organization CareOne partnered with the New England Patriots and filled this semi with non-perishable items, including water, toiletries, clothing, and other essentials that are needed.

    The organization said players generously donated items over time, helping to fill the tractor trailer.

    More than 100 million tons of relief supplies have been donated to CareOne.

    The organization has three other 18-wheelers like this one that will eventually head to Puerto Rico, after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island.

    Many have been left without shelter, electricity, and even food.
