PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Pascagoula firefighters and police officers are doing their part to help those who were devastated by last week's deadly tornado outbreak. First responders from Pascagoula arrived in Sandersville and Louisville on Wednesday bearing truck loads of supplies to give to those who lost so much in the storms.

The supplies were collected through a city-wide drive, and Pascagoula residents answered the bell in a big way. Lieutenant Doug Adams said without the community's support, the relief efforts would have never been possible.

"The people in Louisville and Sandersville were very grateful to see the response and receive the collected supplies," said Adam. "They kept saying that we don't know how much the help was appreciated, although we have been in the same position before ourselves after Katrina and other disasters. This was an opportunity to pay it forward for the help we received."

The supplies the firefighters and police delivered included clothes, diapers, personal care items, water and non-perishable food items.
