Parishioners at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church over the past week or so collected 250 boxes of goods, such as clothing and toiletries, that have been shipped to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Marialena Marzullo, who spearheaded the collection drive, was among those present when a DHL truck came to the Pine Street church on Thursday afternoon to pick all the donations, piles of boxes and bags ready to go to Texas.
Marzullo has contacts at DHL through her job at KPMG in Short Hills, which is how the international shipping giant got involved in transporting the donated goods to Texas.
