Emergency supplies from Coxsackie to aid hurricane victims

October 21, 2017 06:37 PM

COXSACKIE – A tractor-trailer full of emergency supplies left the Coxsackie Correctional Facility Saturday morning destined for Florida.

The truck was donated by a company in Greenville, and volunteers have been filling it for more than a month, loading it up with everything from bottled water and baby supplies, to pet food and clothing. All the supplies are going to help victims of hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“The residents that donated should be commended for what they did,” said Jim Miller of NYSCOPBA.

The charitable effort was spearheaded by Steve Humphrey, a retired corrections officer. He says he lost everything during Tropical Storm Irene and wants to do whatever he can to help those in need down south.
