 BURDINES ORGANIZES STATEWIDE RELIEF EFFORT TO AID HURRICANE VICTIMS;
 DEPARTMENT STORES TO COLLECT SUPPLIES WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 2
 MIAMI, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Burdines department stores across the state will collect supplies for victims of Hurricane Andrew on Wednesday, Sept. 2, then deliver the goods to storm-struck South Florida in a convoy of Burdines tractor-trailers, announced Chairman Howard Socol.
 All 42 Burdines -- Florida's largest department store chain -- will be accepting provisions such as canned goods, bottled water, baby products and charcoal from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Dade County and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in other locations. Donors should go to each store's customer pick-up area. Burdines employees will staff the collection centers.
 The fleet of trucks then will converge at the Burdines Miami distribution center, 7100 N.W. 32nd Ave., and depart as a convoy this weekend at a time to be determined. The caravan will deliver its cargo to the most needy Dade locations to be designated by the American Red Cross.
 "We are glad to coordinate this effort because of our strong commitment to the people of Florida," Socol said. "I'm sure the operation will be a great success because we are well-equipped with more than 40 statewide locations, a fleet of trucks, an army of devoted employees and countless customers throughout the state who care deeply about the storm-struck residents of Dade County."
