Local Volunteers Pack Emergency Boxes For Hurricane Sandy Victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- As victims from Superstorm Sandy continued to work to get back on their feet, middle Tennessee residents have been doing what they can to help.
At the Churches of Christ Disaster Relief warehouse in South Nashville more than 200 volunteers manned a giant assembly line. Each box they pack can sustain a family of four, for a couple of days.
"We're loading supplies up for Hurricane Sandy up in New Jersey and New York,' said one Goodpasture High School student.
Students from Goodpasture High School and local volunteers packed up hundreds of boxes ready to be transported to the Northeast. Thousands of people in the northeast are still without power, so something as simple as a twist off lid on a jar of peanut butter will really be appreciated.
In less than two hours the volunteers filled 1, 300 food boxes. The boxes were loaded up in an 18-wheeler and are on the road to the Northeast.
