(SPRINGFIELD, Mo., AP) — A Springfield-based nonprofit has sent 38 tractor-trailers filled with emergency supplies to people recovering from Hurricane Sandy.

By next week, Convoy of Hope expects to have distributed more than 2 million pounds of the supplies, such as food and water. The items are being distributed to multiple sites in New York and New Jersey.
Convoy of Hope spokesman Jeff Nene says churches, civic organizations, corporations and individuals are helping the organization meet the needs of storm survivors.
