Willow Lane, Eyer Students Aid Storm Victims

The Community Service Club of Willow Lane Elementary School in Lower Macungie collected more than 100 bags of toiletries, cleaning supplies, clothes and food for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The Willow Lane Elementary School Community Service Club gathered more than 100 bags of donated goods for the New Jersey victims of Hurricane Sandy, which destroyed neighborhoods and boardwalks along the Jersey Shore. 

Club members, with the help of Eyer Middle School students and parents, were at the Lower Macungie home of Nancy Schmitt, co-chairwoman of the club, to load the donations onto a truck from Call2Haul.com of Allentown Thursday.

Brandon Schiller, Call2Haul.com's project manager, donated his company's truck and services to drive the contributions to Red Bank, N.J. where a group called Project Rebuild & Recover will be distributing the goods to victims of the storm. 

Schmitt, who chairs the Willow Lane club with her sister Janet Mehrtens, said the students were glad to be part of the relief efforts. 

"Most people around here are from New York and New Jersey so it was close to our hearts," Schmitt said.
