OKLAHOMA CITY — Two men, one truck, on a mission is preparing to make a long journey to the northeastern United States.
Robert Norris and Johnathan Moore are driving a donated U-Haul to Queens, New York, to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
“I thought, ‘Why not me? Why not help? Lets do something if we can,’” Norris said.
The truck is empty but donations are already starting to come in.
Norris’ employer, Star Fuel, donated the gas to get to New York.
Their competitor, Elmer Smith, made a sizable donation as well.
“They are going to be donating $12,000 worth of coats, hats and gloves,” Norris said.
Sandy’s victims are most in need of toiletries, diapers and cleaning supplies.
“I wanted to help with many other disaster situations in the past and I’ve never had a chance to. I’m not a rich man. This is one way I can help,” Norris said.
Oklahomans are responding in earnest.
