Professional boxer partners with survival store to send water filtration systems to Puerto Rico

NOW: Professional boxer partners with survival store to send water filtration systems to Puerto Rico

NEXT:

RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A store in Racine County is helping with relief efforts in Puerto Rico. SHTFandGO is a survival store in Burlington.

Owners Richard and Nicole Gilbreath have partnered with the Fres Oquendo Boxing Academy in Chicago to send water filtration systems to Puerto Rico to help people still reeling from Hurricane Maria. 

Oquendo is a professional boxer. He was born in Puerto Rico.

"It's very important to me because I still got my aunts, uncles, and cousins. When they told me days after the hurricane they didn't have no water, no electricity, no nothing, that's how I knew there was a very serious problem," said Oquendo.

"Water supplies is our main business. We manufacture three different distillers and about five different water purification systems," said Richard Gilbreath, Co-Owner of SHTFandGO. 

Oquendo and his team are traveling to Puerto Rico next week. SHTFandGO is sending them with six solar encase systems and 1,000 bucket systems. They've already donated 2,500 filtration systems to the island since the hurricane.
