ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A Duke City contracting company is gearing up to help victims of Tropical Storm Florence.


Michael Grandjean, executive vice president of Grancor Enterprises, is collecting donations to help victims of the storm, which made landfall on the East Coast Friday morning.

"We'll be accepting them through next week and then what we will do is we will find a way to get them out there," Grandjean said.

On Monday Grandjean and his friend, another former Navy corpsman, will be flying to South Carolina. There, they'll meet up with a five-ton military truck he already shipped out on a flatbed.

They plan to start helping hurricane victims in any way they can.

"Our goal is to try and get with the local authorities and the police and fire and say, 'Where do you need us,' and then have them direct us to where they can use this type of vehicle and go out and help with whatever they need," Grandjean said.

Grancor Enterprises has also started a GoFundMe page. They'll match donations up to $10,000 that will also go towards their relief efforts.

"We just want to raise as much money as we can to be able to get as many supplies as we can to help as many people as we can in South Carolina," he said.

Donations can be dropped off at Grancor near Menaul and University Monday during their business hours, or made via their GoFundMe page.
