The island has been devastated by Hurricane Maria and needs the help from others to bring life back to some type of normalcy. A family that has been helpful all along on the island with young people and the poor are the Clemente’s. Vera Clemente and her sons carry on the legacy of her late husband Roberto Clemente with Sports City but now they need our help with much more for those in need.
When in a crisis, what would Roberto Clemente do? He would step up and pay it forward, that’s what Duane Rieder, curator and executive director of the Roberto Clemente Museum says. Pittsburghers had this in mind Sunday as it came together at the museum to gather donations to aid Puerto Ricans struggling to recover after Hurricane Maria.
