The suburban New York hamlet of Sleepy Hollow has donated a fire truck to the storm-wrecked New York City community of Broad Channel.

The New York Post reports that village trustees in Sleepy Hollow voted last week to "sell" the fire truck to Broad Channel for $1.

Sleepy Hollow Volunteer Fire Department officials delivered the truck on Saturday. It was packed with sleeping bags, clothes, winter coats, canned food and cleaning supplies.

The Broad Channel Volunteer Fire Department's only truck was swamped by the superstorm that wreaked havoc in the tiny Queens community.

Sleepy Hollow is 30 miles north of New York City.

It was originally called North Tarrytown. Residents voted in 1996 to rename the village after the Washington Irving story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."
