Miranda's Dream Team Collecting Donations For Victims Of Hurricane Harvey

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Across the mid-south dozens of organizations are pitching in to help the victims of hurricane Harvey.

Miranda's Dream Team is collecting nonperishables and cash donations all day today and tomorrow.

The event is called Stuff the Truck for Texas. Because of a great turnout, the truck is already filled.

Miranda's dream team is a local nonprofit organization created by James and Trina Taylor for their daughter Miranda, who died tragically from a rare form of brain cancer.

She was only 13 months old.

To continue her memory, her parents do donation drives like this one to help those in need.

They've been out here since yesterday collecting items.

Local businesses have also joined the cause.

Huey's restaurant brought a truck load.

Memphis Catholic Schools loaded two buses with items.

James Taylor says to see the response has been emotional for him.

"Miranda was an immaculate girl. Miranda's dream team she was amazing. The 13 months that we spent with her before we lost her this is a way to make her live and make her shine and it just makes me want to cry."

Also, the delta fair has donated 10 thousand coupons for 5 dollars off for anyone who gives items to help stuff the truck.

If you want to support this cause, you still have time. It's going on today until 8 p.m. and tomorrow from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
