Cherokee Co. man gets donation overload for Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -

A Cherokee County man has stepped up to help victims still struggling from Super Storm Sandy, but has found himself in a tough situation. He has gotten so many donations that he is not sure how to get them to the victims.

Jason Payne took action when Hurricane Sandy hit his mother's home in New York. He was originally going to ship a few boxes to the neighborhood, but the few items quickly turned into four truckloads of supplies. The problem is that he cannot afford the $2,000 it would cost to rend just one truck, let alone four.

The donations are still rolling in, but Jason Payne is running out of space. The hurricane relief has turned into a donation overload.

Jason is now trying to find a way to get the truckloads to Staten Island. He is hoping a rental company will let him use a truck or charge him a cheap rate so he can get the donations where they are needed before the holidays.

If you have a way to help, give Jason Payne a call at 770-687-4148 or email him at jason_payne@hotmail.com.
