“We started out at 6am Wednesday with a box of diapers and a 12 pack of bottled water. To think we are on a way to filling 5 semi trailer trucks is simply amazing,. by partnering with the disaster relief side of Americorps and with a team of volunteers from Orange and Lake Counties escorting the donations to Texas, we can ensure the community’s donations will make it directly into the hands of those in need,” said event organizer Randy Ross.
