Kasper Cares a nonprofit organization operated by Kasper Electrical Company with headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens is sending a team of electricians and volunteers to help with relief efforts.

The volunteers and electricians from the company will drive an RV filled with supplies to help clean up debris.

Shauna Pierre a manager at Kasper Electrical Company told WPTV this isn't their first time helping out with hurricane cleanup. Most recently they helped restore power to homes in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma and Maria.

"We hope that other companies will make the same sacrifices if Palm Beach County is hit with a devastating storm," Pierre said.
