Louisiana supplies arrive in Hurricane Sandy area

Here's a nice story for Thanksgiving, courtesy of New York's WCBS-TV:

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Hurricane survivors from hundreds of miles away have arrived on Long Island with a massive care package to help the Sandy relief effort.

Two truckloads of supplies and food arrived at Amityville High School from New Orleans, thanks to a couple of Katrina survivors who wanted to help out.

The tractor-trailers are filled with diapers, clothes, food and any other supplies New Orleans residents thought could be useful in the clean up and relief effort.

“It was amazing to see how many people responded to our cry for help down there to send up here,” Louisiana resident Trey Ledbetter told WCBS 880′s Sophia Hall.

This is the "Lagniappe From the Bayou" effort we wrote about this week in Bouquets & Brickbats. The whole story here.
