WATN >> local memphis live continues with your host, amy speropoulos. >>amy: survivors of hurricanes harvey and irma is and others are working to work could be things back together. these are families, friends, loved ones and members of our nation and neighbors. joining us this morning telling us how they are helping our neighbors in need, zellner with sleep-ezzz and the police charitable organization. ladies first. you guys have been involved with folks in the community for many years, with michael particularly, there has been a good, long-standing relationship. >> absolutely. he brings the community part to the police part. you have seen have had our people police events and for us it is an extension. we want to show other communities that we are here. he has your back and the police have her back and they want to help and get you back to where you were before this hit. >>amy: was this a no-brainer for you, michael humic. >> a few weeks ago after harvey hit, i called michael williams and he sort of chuckled a little bit and said, i was expecting a call. we did this last year for baton rouge. we took a truck load down there and had it 90 percent full when they went down there. i went down there with one of the guys that works with me along with the truck because i wanted to see it for myself. you see it on television and is horrible but in person it is quite devastating and you see what really happened. >>amy: was that a bit of a game changer? i know with you all being involved knowing that really and truly the police officers are coming together in the community, it encourages everyone to really embrace our first responders and men and women on the frontline. >> so many of them, they had to just go out and help everybody while they couldn't take the precautions for their house that everyone else could. i can't imagine. we talked to some in port aransas and they didn't have the flood damage that others did like houston, they said 90 percent, because they had the straight-line winds and stuff like that. they were out trying to help other people. >>amy: what kind of items are are accepting a lot of bottled water. they really need down there. cleaning supplies, baby wipes, diapers, cloves. there are some people who say they can't donate close. they want a brand-new underwear probably close when people lose everything they will accept anything. >>amy: that is very true. and, randy, what time and when do we need to drop off? >> from 11 to 5 at sleep-ezzz tomorrow. >>amy: any parting words for us? i am so glad you said that, randy, because we heard all the stories and saw other reporters. i saw someone on social media say why is there a curfew. the mayor of the community came back and said because we have first responders who have to live also. >> oh, yes. they were asking for boots and stuff for the officers because they are out there in water and they don't have time to let their boots and right before they have got to go back out there and help again. just seeing the pictures of officers that finally had a chance to sit down, they just crashed because they were emotionally physically exhausted. we just can't imagine. >>amy: that is why you got it to kick into high gear. you saw what they did on a daily basis and you wanted them to be supported. >> absolutely. this started about 3 and a half years ago as we have talked about before. when i see what offices go through every day, like i say, you leave your house every morning, and you don't know if you are coming home at night. that is true with anybody but especially for police officers and first responders. >>amy: a routine police stop may not be such a routine stop and you just never know. that's pop up that full-screen again because we really want to join behind the memphis police charitable association and michael zellner support hurricane victims. donations at 11 to 5 at sleep-ezzz. you can get all the information's online. >> thank you for joining us. >> we are going to talk about the best part of your home. what is the best part of your home? it's really what you put inside it. we will put you in touch with the man from hometown furniture that
