Whelen Engineering held a donation drive at their headquarters on Tuesday for anyone who wanted to send non-perishable items to the storm battered region.
The company says it received lots of clothes, food and water, along with batteries, flashlights and first-aid kits.
“We were going to go with our 45-foot trailer, but with so much stuff coming in, we really just needed to get our larger trailer so now actually we are kind of waiting. We’re in limbo at the moment as to whether or not we’re going to send an extra trailer,” said Tiffany Turchetti of Whelen Engineering.
The extra trailer may be needed because Whelen also collected donations at its New Hampshire location. They’ll all be trucked down south together.
