MORRISTOWN - One woman has spent the past several chilly nights camped out next to the Morristown Town Hall in an effort to raise donations for Sandy victims.
Berit Ollestad hopes to fill 145 tote bags with essential school items for Hugh Boyd Elementary School students in Seaside Heights, who were directly impacted by the storm.
She says she is more than willing to spend a few nights in a cold tent, knowing she can return home.
"It's temporary for me," Ollestad told News 12 New Jersey. "…but these folks have a long road ahead of them."
Morristown firefighter, Nick Prizzi, has also been braving the cold and collecting donations.
Donations can be brought to their campsite or to the Morristown Fire Department.
