Donations delivered from Cape May County with love

WILDWOOD -

Residents of Cape May County are continuing to do their part to help the victims of hurricane sandy as they spent more than a week of their time loading up a caravan of trucks to deliver goods to our neighbors to the north.

It's been nearly two weeks since Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey coast and relief efforts are still underway.

And residents of Cape May County have been working hard to show they care packing up dozens of trucks with donations to make a special delivery to their neighbors up north in Hoboken.

"Our first focus was inwards in our community to make sure our families were taken care of and now with these relief efforts we're going to go right to the people further North our brothers and sisters up there that have really lost everything," explained Kevin Cielli, caravan organizer.

"We're a whole bunch of friends that came together for a whole bunch of friends we don't know and yet to meet," said volunteer Phillip Kalfina.

Dozens of volunteers have been working hard since November 1st, collecting donations for the large caravan and according to them the amount of support has been truly amazing in their effort to fill up these trucks.

"The love and support of not only the residents of Cape May County but all of the people from our tri-state area who've fallen in love over the years are coming together to help those who really need it," Cielli said.

"It's nice to give people something to have, something that I have extra of right now," expressed donator Steve Bolinski.

And as the crisis continues for the residents of north jersey, members of this caravan want to let them that we are all still in this together.

"My dear friends called out for help and I wouldn't let them down and like I said and everybody else has said it was [could have been] so easy for it to be us and we just feel grateful," Kalfina said.

The caravan was scheduled to arrive in Hoboken around 1pm Saturday and all of the donations will be given directly to those in need.
