St. Petersburg, Florida -- St. Petersburg firefighters are collecting donations and supplies for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Now through Nov. 9, St. Petersburg Association of Firefighters' Union 747 is collecting donations at the 747 Union Hall, located at 5420 1st Avenue North.
They will be collecting new and gently used clothes, new undergarments, canned food, water, baby supplies (diapers, food, clothes) and toiletries every day from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monetary donations and gift cards also will be collected.
"Anything people can donate will be helpful to the families who lost so much," says Christopher Spafford, who is heading up the drive.
With temperatures dropping to near freezing and many still without electricity, warm clothes and blankets are desperately needed.
