Volunteers Needed in Margaretville

Our Margaretville correspondent reports that many buildings outside town, ones that house a lot of poor and elderly folk, are condemned and structurally unsound. They’re looking for volunteers to come to the Catskills and assist the elderly who “need help cleaning their homes of mud and others whose homes are awaiting inspection where they will need help either with cleaning or getting the stuff out if it’s condemned.” Volunteers should bring gloves, shovels and old gloves.

Help will be needed, she says, through the end of next week long after people forget the disaster.

Money donations can continued to be made through the MARK project (If you send a check, mark that it’s for flood/hurricane relief):
