Of course the American Red Cross needs a total of 200 U-Haul trucks in which 107 have already been delivered and more being delivered today but there is still a big need for volunteers to assist in completing this effort.

U-Haul and the American Red Cross need volunteers to assist with getting the trucks into the hands of the American Red Cross as quickly as possible so that much needed supplies can be delivered to the many residents of New York and New Jersey who are still feeling impacts of the horrible devastation left by Superstorm Sandy.
