CAMDEN, Del.- When Diane Ambrosio of the Harvest Years Senior Center in Camden, Del. heard about the destruction in Crisfield, Md. from Hurricane Sandy, she knew she had to help.

"It bothered me, thanksgiving was coming up and some of these people have absolutely nothing," Ambrosio said.

For the past month, Ambrosio has been collecting household items and construction materials to deliver to the people of Crisfield on Friday.

"I couldn't have come up with a better idea. I feel so good, especially because I thought of it before Christmas and I'm excited," she said. "I'm excited to get down there and present it."

But she has not done it alone. Everyone at the Harvest Years Senior Center has been pitching in and they could use more help.

"We can use whatever we can bring down to them, except clothes," she said. "We have the bus filled pretty much with clothes and that's the one that's less than anything else."

Ambrosio said her group needs more cleaning supplies, like bleach to kill mold, to deliver to Crisfield.

The Harvest Years Senior Center will be accepting donations until 9 a.m. Friday.
