HARRISONBURG-- With all of the weather conditions people in the northeast have faced in last two weeks, there is a need for supplies. People here in the valley are trying to help.

At the Wal-Mart off of Route 33 in Harrisonbirg, the LifeSong Church is trying to fill up an entire truck with items and donations for the people affected by Sandy and now the nor'easter. They just started collecting this morning.

They are looking for things that people would need in this situation, like bottled water, basic clothing, socks, underwear, nonperishable food items, blankets and linens.

They are standing outside the doors to the Wal-mart encouraging people to donate. Next week, Larry Gardner, who goes to the church, and has a trucking company, will drive the donations up to Toms River, N.J., which has been hit hard by Sandy.

"As I listen to the news, there are so many that need so much there. Our goal is just to show the love of God and the love of Christ to our fellow brothers sisters up there," said Gardner.

They will be out there for the next three days: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.
