The Tennessee Highway Patrol loaded two-semi trailers with food, toiletries, and other supplies for those still in need due to Hurricane Michael.

The trailers escorted by FHP left for Panama City Beach where the items will be distributed to various schools and non-profits. 

"The Volunteer State has had a long tradition of volunteering for many, many years, and we continue that volunteering spirit in helping others," said Lt. John Harmon with Tennessee Highway Patrol.
