BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Christy Halloran doesn't know any one affected by Hurricane Sandy. But that didn't stop her and her daughter from dropping off 50 coats Friday afternoon to help those affected by the storm.
"If you can help, why not. I grew up on the gulf coast. Been through lots of hurricanes and so I know where they're coming from," said Halloran.
"Had some children that's really cute. One of them walked up here and gave us toys," said Richard Shinn, a volunteer with the local donation drive.
From toys to diapers a truck full of items has been collected through the generosity of complete strangers and volunteers with Toomer's for Tuscaloosa. The group began collecting items Thursday morning.
"The turnout here has been unreal. It's a lot of people also have family in Jersey and New York," said volunteer, Darryl Fuhrman.
People like Neil Berkman who was born in Queens. He has family and friends who are still without power and some lost everything.
"It's amazing. I mean, I love living in Alabama. Friendliest people around and that's why I stay here," said Berkman.
But not everyone is keeping compassion in mind during this tragedy of Sandy. The IRS released a statement warning of possible scam artists trying to take advantage of the generous.
In the letter is warns people to watch who they donate to and to do your homework on which charities you give your money to.
Berkman said he's not too worried his loved ones will fall victim.
"Hopefully up north when something happens here they'll return the gesture," said Berkman.
The IRS also advises those donating to not give out your personal information like your Social Security number or credit and bank account number.
Also, if you log IRS.gov you can check out legitimate organizations to make your donation.
