Students in Wantagh started a drive Wednesday to help Ukrainian refugees.
So many donations came in that they had to order U-Haul trucks to transport all of the donations.
"It's been impressive to watch, so many of the kids want to talk about what's going on there," says Wantagh teacher Kathleen Flynn. "Throughout the day yesterday and today, people were just coming up to me with bags saying, 'Here you go.' People literally came with their entire car full."
The donations were given to The Ukrainian Americans of Long Island.
The organization is still accepting any donations to help refugees such as medical supplies and household items.
