FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- A Fort wayne church is helping a church with an enormous food pantry on Manhattan's Lower East Side that was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

New York City's Trinity Lutheran Church lost 20,000 pounds of food, appliances, and 90% of its paper products when the storm surge flooded its basement.

Pastor Phil Trzynka grew up in Fort Wayne, and says since the power came back on, they've been feeding four times the number of people since before the storm hit.

So Trinity English Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne is collecting cash to help.

"$2700 already is what was collected on Sunday. And we would hope that there would be some additional offerings that would come in that we would be able to forward up to them there," says Senior Pastor Gary Erdos of Trinity English Lutheran Church.

If you'd like to donate to help the New York church, call Trinity English Lutheran at 426-3424.
