EASTLAKE, Ohio — Nearly a dozen volunteers, most dressed in OSU Buckeye gear, kicked off a two-day effort Saturday to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

They organized in the parking lot of the Lake County Captain stadium Saturday morning, collecting non-perishable food items, clothing, paper goods and water in a large tractor-trailer.

It was all part of the Buckeyes for Sandy Relief organized by a group based in Columbus. Jim Reid, of Cleveland, spearheaded the local drive after hearing about the group.

The local event ended at 2 p.m. Saturday, but the truck will head to Columbus for a drive set there from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
