“I’m a construction worker and I have a few weeks off,” Jim Wolfe explained. “I decided to utilize that time doing this clothing drive.”
Superstorm Sandy brought a storm surge that caused extensive flooding and high winds that caused massive structural damage. The overall death toll by Saturday had risen to 105, including 41 in New York City.
In Cedartown, Wolfe and his wife Cheryl were hard at work Saturday loading a semi-trailer with donated bags of clothing. Ken Casey, owner of Casey’s Food Store, donated use of a lot off West Avenue toward the effort, which is described on fliers as The Hurricane Sandy Victim Relief Clothing Drive.
Clothing donations will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the trailer, which is parked in an empty lot across from the Cedartown Post Office at the corner of College Street and West Avenue. The trailer is expected to pull out on Nov. 12.
