READING, Pa. -

The Albright College community is sending supplies to victims of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey.

A van filled with clothing, food, water and toiletries left Reading for Ocean County on Friday. Organizers said the collection is personal.

"We have a lot of students that are from the New Jersey area. There's also a lot of faculty and staff that family in the area, including myself, so we wanted to do something to help with the relief efforts," said Rebecca Morrow, director of residential life.

The items will help people who lost their homes to Sandy.
