The outpouring of support continues for Sandy victims across the Hudson Valley and the rest of the tri-state area.

Members of the Ossining police department have been collecting supplies since superstorm Sandy swept into the region last week, and Friday, they plan to distribute donations to fellow officers who need help.

"We're loading up vans and bringing the supplies to the 122nd precinct on Staten Island," said Ossining police officer Peter Carpenter. "(The donations) are going to directly benefit police officers who lost their homes, and other recovery efforts in the area."

The cops put up signs at polling locations on Election Day and have been posting on social media to help solicit food, water and cleaning supplies for their brothers in need.
