YAKIMA, WA - As recovery centers in Oso close, volunteers are stepping up their efforts.

Two huge trucks sit in the Haney Trucking parking lot. One is filled to the brim and the other one is half way full of everything from people food, pet food, blankets and anything else that the Haney Trucking Line thought people in Oso could possibly need.

More than 70,000 pounds of donations are ready to be shipped out Wednesday, and the company said they're expected to arrive in Oso by Thursday morning.

Haney Trucking President, Peter Carlander, said it's important for the business to lend a hand when others are affected by such a huge tragedy.

"We have a culture of giving," said Carlander. "The organization has been here in the Yakima Valley for decades, and it just seemed like the right thing to do."

The company president said Haney Trucking was also inspired by East Valley teacher Randy Andrews. Andrews is a former Haney employee, and on his own, he gathered some 4,000 pounds of food to deliver to mudslide victims.
