Retired CMPD officer challenges public to help pets impacted by Sandy


A week after Sandy slammed into the northeastern coast, we are getting a picture of how widespread the damage really is, and how long it might take to rebuild.

Chris Fisher is a retired CMPD officer who now works at CFS Logistics in Charlotte. He issued a challenged to his former coworkers, and the general public.

Fisher and his company want to send a tractor-trailer full of supplies for the animals impacted by the storm. The supplies will be sent to officers and firefighters in the New York/New Jersey area.

That same tractor-trailer will also carry regular supplies to help the cleanup effort.

If you want to help, donations of the following items are requested:

  • cat food, supplies
  • dog food, supplies
  • bleach
  • diapers
  • socks
  • boots
  • rubber gloves
  • regular work gloves
  • paper products, plastic utensils
  • garbage bags
  • batteries
  • flashlights
  • generators
  • protein bars
  • brooms
  • fabric softener
  • Lysol wipes
  • canned food
  • baby formula

Donations can be dropped off at CFS Logistics, located at 3410 Oak Lake Boulevard in Charlotte, from 8am-5pm. The last day to donate is Wednesday, November 7th. The truck will leave Thursday morning.
