CHESWOLD, Del.-  The Cheswold Volunteer Fire Company is collecting donations from the community to deliver to New York - one of the many places ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.

"Just think - a thousand fire fighters losing their homes. I just hope people think of that. That's just fire fighters. What about the police and the general public," said Josh Dempsey, assistant fire chief of the Cheswold Fire Company.

Dempsey is heading the movement along with his brother Tucker.

"There is a sense of brotherhood between firemen. We certainly want to help out anytime they're in need and feel they would do the same for us," said Tucker Dempsey.

Irvin Smith recently moved to Cheswold from Queens, N.Y., and says he has always helped those in need.

"Your neighbor is not the one who always lives next door to you all the time. It's the one who's the farthest away. So, our neighbors are suffering and it's time that we give them some assistance," said Smith.

Gloria Brown of Cheswold also dropped off canned goods.    

"I just wanted to do whatever we could to help out," said Brown.

A community helping out those so far away, but so much in need.

The Dempsey's plan on filling a 20-foot truck with donations to deliver to New York on Saturday.
