The items most needed are canned meals, paper products, diapers, baby items, hygiene products, single-serving snacks, peanut butter, cleaning supplies and disinfectant wipes, the release stated.

“I was sitting at home watching the coverage and my daughter looked at me and said, ‘dad what can we do to help these people?’ so it got me thinking,” said volunteer Mike Foley.

“We were lucky to have Company 7 loan us their parking lot to be able to collect these items,” he said.
