HAVERSTRAW -

A group of volunteers in Orange is headed down to help Hurricane Irma victims in Florida.

Armed with donated supplies, Chris Giudice and four of his friends are headed to Irma-ravaged Florida to volunteer in the relief efforts.

The group spent hours Monday loading their three cars to the brim with supplies from collection sites.

They are leaving their jobs and families behind for five days in the hope of making a difference where it's so desperately needed.

The group says they will first head to Tampa, where they will meet up with other volunteers.
