Morehead City -

Communities in Eastern North Carolina are sending donations of clothing, food, and other supplies north to help victims of Superstorm Sandy.

There are several locations in Morehead City collecting emergency supplies. One such location is Happy House Realty. Owner Frank Kivett has been collecting donations and has sent 1 truck full of supplies to help people displaced by the storm.

There were so many donations, Kivett didn't know what to do with it all.

"Everything we've got now, we want to make sure it's on the road whether it's through our truck or somebody else," Kivett said.

Which is exactly what happened. First Baptist Church in Morehead City collected the extra supplies to put in a storage pod. The pod was supplied by Acme Moving and Storage.

"If people find out you're doing something and it's a good cause, they are always very, very generous," Larry Land said. Land is the former owner of Acme and a volunteer for the Sandy relief effort.

"More than likely we'll have more than we can take and we will have to take multiple trips up there," Land said.
