Posted: Updated:
NEW ROCHELLE -

Longtime Yankee pitcher Mariano Rivera is lending a helping hand to those affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

The baseball legend teamed up with Steiner Sports in New Rochelle to give back to those hit the hardest by the storm.

"Come with a bottle of water," Rivera says. "Come with a can, come with diapers, come with anything that you can give us. It will be well-received."

Some people came as far as Long Island to Steiner Warehouse to help.

The supplies will be shipped out on Friday.
