Polish Americans in the midwestern city of Chicago were donating goods and supplies such as canned food, water and toiletries in a campaign coordinated by a charity organisation, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported on Thursday.
"We are putting our daily routines on hold in order to help others,” Adam Romanowski, co-founder of the Polish Navy First Responders organisation, told Polish Radio.
He added: “With weather, you never know."

The Polish Navy First Responders charity organisation was set up a year ago as a spontaneous drive to help people in Texas, including Polish Americans, who suffered as a result of Hurricane Harvey, Polish Radio reported.
The US city of Chicago is said to be home to the world’s second-largest population of Poles after Warsaw.
