STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) – Whether it’s a tornado in Oklahoma, a tsunami in Japan, or an earthquake in Haiti, whatever the disaster is, chances are that many of the relief supplies came from a 50,000-square-foot warehouse in Stamford, Connecticut.
“This is a family emergency kit. It’s a tote bag. It’s stocked with everything a family needs in an emergency,” AmeriCares communications manager Donna Porstner told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams as she showed him one of the things they send around the world in times of need. “You’ve got towels, toothpaste, razors, toilet paper, baby wipes.”
