The response from the community was “unbelievable.” After three days, the garage was full of a couple of thousand items the wash had collected. A school bus was needed to carry all the items to Rockaway.

After parking the bus next to a polling table, Birdsall found hundreds of people on the streets with no homes and food and only the clothes on their back. Employees began unloading the approximately 80 bags and distributed the winter clothes to the crowd.
