BROOKLYN - Brooklyn received a big donation from people out-of-state who are trying to help in the recovery from Hurricane Sandy.

Three Coach buses from Maryland pulled into Park Slope, filled with a variety of necessities, including food, blankets and toiletries.

Organizers at the Old First Church on Carroll Street say they're trying to distribute all the goods as fast as they can. The church is also offering hot meals and sandwiches, which are being cooked around the clock by some local businesses.
