Area truck drivers to haul donated supplies to N.J.

Lisa Mireles cried when she saw footage of two small children swept out of their mother's arms by waves in Hurricane Sandy.

She figured she had to do something to help victims in New Jersey -- a state the Shiloh resident and her husband, Elias, frequent as part of their trucking business, L&E Trucking. They have owned the business since 1998.

Mireles estimated as part of their business, she and her husband deliver food to about 100 companies in New Jersey.

So the couple, who have personally met more than 300 people during their deliveries and know some of them personally, decided to take supplies to the Garden State. A story about their efforts was published on the front page of Tuesday's Reflector.
