Lake Park, GA - If there ever was a trailer full of love for your neighbor, this would be it. 35 feet of brotherhood on 18 wheels. Destined for Moore, Oklahoma.

The effort to put together a trailer full of goods for tornado victims was organized by three friends in Lowndes County who host a radio show together called "The Good Outdoors Show". They'd been raising funds for tornado victims, when one woman called to say thank you.

Heather Seedly lives in Moore, Oklahoma. She was on her way to visit family in Lake City when she heard the show. And the friends decided to put their efforts together.

"It just kind of happened," said Steve Nichols, co-host of The Good Outdoors Show. "And we're not trying to take the credit. That's not what it's all about. There's just been literally hundreds of people rising up to donate money and goods and things. And we just ran around the community picking it all up and we got a guy taking it out there."

The show is hosted by Steve and Darrell Nichols and Ronnie Colbert. Joe Charron not only offered his own truck, but he's volunteering to make the trip too. They loaded up the supplies at Eagle Auto Repair in Lake Park Monday. The truck leaves at 3 am Tuesday morning.

"They're going to pull up at Ms. Heather's house and drop it all off right there on her front step," said Mike Gebora with Black Crow Media. "And she's been very active and organized with the folks out there in Oklahoma. So she's going to make sure that everything that's on this truck gets out there to the people who need it most in Oklahoma."

A trailer full of everything you can think of. Food, water, clothes, toilet paper and so much more. It's all on its way from caring hands in Georgia to those who need it most a thousand miles away.
