A community drive is being held today in Manville to support rebuilding efforts following the damage left behind by Ida.
Volunteers are dropping off supplies, food, clothes and more.
The event is taking place outside the Alexander Batcho Intermediate School, and the outpouring of support is overwhelming.
The parking lot is full of cars and volunteers dropping off cleaning supplies, water, food, clothes, toys for kids and more.
The drive at the Alexander Batcho Intermediate School parking lot was expected to last until 11 a.m., but the support seems to be never-ending.
Organizers say at this point they have enough items. The front of the school, along with gym inside, is totally full of donated items, plus the overflow area at the church across the street is full as well.
However, they still need more money and gift cards for home improvement stores to help so many people in the community whose homes were destroyed.
On Tuesday, President Biden will visit Manville to survey the damage from Ida.
