Local group taking donations to Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The warehouse at CFS Logistics in West Charlotte is filling up quickly with supplies intended for the people who lost everything to Superstorm Sandy.

Harvey Katowitz is the President of a local chapter of retired NYPD officers, called The 10-13 Club. "10-13" is police code for "officer needs assistance" and the group has stepped up to fulfill its mission.

Katowitz says hundreds of people and organizations from all over the Southeast have donated tons of cleaning supplies, food, clothes, and basic necessities for victims. Katowitz says more than 1,500 police officers alone lost their homes in the storm.

The group is transporting the items to New York throughout the next two weeks. CFS Logistics is helping provide warehouse space and transportation for the items. If you'd like to help, you can drop off items at CFS in West Charlotte at 3401 Oak Lake Blvd.
