EUGENE, Ore. -- The Eugene Emeralds are raising money to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit the island in September.

The majority of the island is still without power and potable water.

The Eugene Emeralds have teamed up with YouCaring to raise money for the island. To donate click here.

Ems Manager Jesus Feliciano has led the team for the past two years. The proud Puerto Rican has been working to help the country rebuild since the hurricane hit. He is now asking the Emeralds for help.

"I consider the Eugene Emeralds a family who has been there for me and who has been there for every person proud to be a part of this organization," said Feliciano. "We need you now more than ever. We need your assistance in getting help to our island as soon as possible. Help in any shape or form will be appreciated more than words can describe."

The Ems are raising funds that will be used to buy supplies such as water, hygiene products, and medical supplies. They have created a YouCaring account. 

They said Emeralds and Cub fans who donate at least $25 will receive a special 2018 Top Prospect Calendar, while supplies last.

The team is hoping to reach their $5,000 goal. To donate click here.
