Trucks loaded with supplies are on their way to the Carolinas to help the victims of Hurricane Florence.

Thanks to residents of the Palm Beaches and the Treasure Coast coming together to help make a difference.

That difference is 10,000 pounds of cargo, everything from water to toiletries and dog food.

All of it has been donated.

The plan was executed in less than 3 days. The owners of Blue Line Moving and East Coast Towing and Transport came up with the idea to help the victims of Hurricane Florence and gathered supplies.

Now, three truckloads loaded with pallets of cargo are driving to the Carolinas.

When the word was spread on social media, Floridians answered the call and donated the goods.

Johnny Braunworth is a manager at East Coast Towing and Transport. He says people coming together makes the effort so much easier.

“It’s great anytime you come out on short notice and give whatever they can it’s great," says Braunworth.

“We try to get involved as much as we can. We’re just trying to get back what we can that way when we need it they will be there for us.”

All three trucks left Friday afternoon.

One truck will stop at the Georgia - South Carolina border. The other two will head to Greenville, South Carolina where they will be coordinating with the Red Cross.
