TRENTON, N.J. -- It was a long journey. Your donations to Superstorm Sandy victims traveled nearly 900 miles to get to Trenton, New Jersey.

"There were lines for food, some people had no gas and it was just real messy," said Ruthie Saab with Bethel World Outreach Ministries.

Saab said your donations are an incredible help to their community, whose families do not have the money to replace the food and supplies they lost in Sandy.

"Some people had no power. We had lights off for a couple of days, people were in their house and couldn't get out because they have food that was all damaged," said church member Jallah Taylor.

But just as we pulled in, Mother Nature gave another kick to the region, an ugly Nor'easter.

Heavy snow is coming down, blanketing the area. Yet even that could not stop these volunteers. Though only a few made it to the church in the freezing weather, box-by-box, they moved the supplies inside.

Half of the donations will stay here in Trenton, the other half are going to a church about an hour away in South Jersey. An area
Saab said was devastated by Sandy and in desperate need of
the food and water you've sent.

Even though this Nor'easter is the last thing New Jersey needs, even it could not dampen their spirit of thankfulness.

"We want to give them a big thank you and a big hug and say a big thank you to them," Saab said.
