FEDERALSBURG, Md.- Hurlock Mayor Joyce Spratt says when everyone else was watching "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" on television one night, she couldn't stop thinking about the somber images coming out of Tennessee where hundreds of people had lost their homes. So she went to Facebook to ask her network of friends how they might be able to help. The ball started rolling immediately.  

Dawn Bryan, human relations manager at H & M Bay, Inc. in nearby Federalsburg, responded and now her employer has offered three trucks to carry donated supplies to fire victims.

"We've got farmers sending down hay for the animals, dog food, everything because they have nothing," said Spratt.

"Watching the news, it's so heartbreaking and we get the sense of helplessness watching the devastation in Tennessee and you just want to help," said Bryan.

Bryan and Spratt say donations ranging from non-perishable food to personal hygiene items are being accepted and are being collected at the H & M Bay headquarters in Federalsburg.  Other drop-off locations are available in Hurlock,

For more information on drop-off locations and items being accepted go to www.hmbayinc.com or visit H & M Bay, Inc.'s Facebook page.
