On Monday morning, two firefighters from Lakewood loaded up a truck with supplies and set off for Texas. Jeff Kantorak and Dave Paydock, both members of Lakewood Firefighters Local 382, will personally deliver water, diapers, food and other items to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
The effort to hand-deliver relief items started with Kantorak. In his off-time, Kantorak drives a truck for Recycle-It LLC. Kantorak approached Paul W. Osad, vice president of the company, and said he wanted to drive to the Houston-area. Kantorak even offered to foot the bill for the trip. Osad gave the OK.
