WATERFORD (WWJ) - A local company is collecting items to help people in the path of Hurricane Michael.

Disaster Relief At Work (DRAW) is packing hundreds of five-gallon buckets filled with supplies to take to Florida. 

DRAW is a non-profit disaster relief group based out of Waterford. 

Greg Martin, the director of DRAW, says they'll be sending teams to Florida.  

"So, we assemble buckets of supplies like that and then we send teams to, not just assemble the stuff, but then also provide services to help them ... at their house. Maybe their stuff is all over the place because of winds or floods," he says. 

"The truck will leave Saturday," says Martin. "We know this is a high-wind one so we really trying to get tarps and we are really trying to get Rubbermaid bins. Those are the things we are low on, I always tell people, we need people, stuff and money."

They're accepting donations at The Coffee Bucket, which is on the front side of the warehouse, at 3549 Airport Road in Waterford, up until they leave on Saturday. 

Martin says to check their Facebook page for a list of needed items.
