JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Volunteers gathered on the Westside to sort and pack aid shipments for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan Wednesday.

Donations poured in from all over the country to the LBC foundation here in Jacksonville.

The foundation is teaming with the Philippine Red Cross to distribute 4 shipping containers full of supplies to areas affected by the typhoon.

"I didn't expect it would turn out this way, the warehouse over their in the other unit is really full," LBC Foundation representative Ed Pecayo said.

Pecayo home was lost during the storm. He waited for almost three days to hear from his family still living in the Philippines. Thanks to God, he said, no one was hurt.

Jarrod Stone's Mom is from Manila. He was moved to help out after he saw pictures of the devastation.

"I was told from my church they were actually helping out. I took it as my chance before work to help out with the typhoon," college student Stone said.

The LBC Foundation will accept donations until November 30th.

The containers will be filled in the coming week and shipped to the Philippines.

Pecayo said it takes 34 days for the ship to reach its destination.
