Caravan of 52 U-Haul Trucks Descending into to Jersey City to Help American Red Cross with Relief and Recovery Efforts
PHOENIX (Nov. 10, 2012) — U-Haul asked for volunteers and got the gracious help and effort from Gold Star Mother, Kathryn Cross and Max Sabrin, Saybrook Fire Department to coordinate and assist in delivering 54 trucks from Connecticut to the American Red Cross Warehouse in Jersey City. They are currently traveling South on I-95, with the help of Connecticut State police providing an escort. The caravan of U-Haul trucks will be arriving at Vince Lombardi Service Station between noon and 1 p.m. for a brief break and then make their way to the American Red Cross Transportation Warehouse.
Of course the American Red Cross needs a total of 200 U-Haul trucks in which 107 have already been delivered and more being delivered today but there is still a big need for volunteers to assist in completing this effort.
U-Haul and the American Red Cross need volunteers to assist with getting the trucks into the hands of the American Red Cross as quickly as possible so that much needed supplies can be delivered to the many residents of New York and New Jersey who are still feeling impacts of the horrible devastation left by Superstorm Sandy.
