CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Saturday morning two huge trucks will leave Chicopee for Staten Island, to distribute donations to Hurricane Sandy victims.
The trucks are filled with every necessity you can think of: from clothing and water, to diapers and furniture. Volunteers collected the goods all day today next to Hu Ke Lau.
Organizer Darlene Sattler told 22News she couldn't believe the overwhelming outpouring that all started on Facebook.
"For people that are so many hundreds of miles away, you expect it when it's your neighbors. But these aren't our neighbors and really, my heart is touched," said Sattler.
And if you'd like to support victims of the storm, the easiest way to help is by texting the word 'REDCROSS' to 9-0-9-9-9. You'll make an automatic $10 donation.
