Volunteers needed in Margaretville, Arkville and Fleischmanns this week
10/14/11 - 3:42 pm
Six weeks after Irene, Dorothy Maffei, the owner of Home Goods in Margaretville, is still coordinating flood relief volunteers in the town of Middletown. She tells us that volunteers are getting pretty thin on the ground, even though the need is still great.
The Watershed Post will be regularly posting Maffei's volunteer needs for Middletown. Right now, here is what is needed. To help out, contact Maffei directly by emailing her at [email protected].
We need volunteers this weekend and next:
We continue to need help with cleaning out, ripping out sheetrock and paneling, and with assisting the Sweep Team and the Volunteer Center.
We need people to help with furniture pick-up and delivery. Any people w/ trucks would be great.
We are still in need of sofas and easy chairs that are in excellent shape.
We need people who can shop for specific things in Delhi, Kingston or Oneonta for us.
Maffei also tells us that a good Samaritan has started a new website, Rebuild123.org, to help her and other long-term volunteer coordinators meet needs in their flood-damaged communities. The site lists needs and contact information for individual coordinators for communities across the Catskills, and is adding new regions daily. Check it out.
If you are a volunteer coordinator and want us to post your flood-relief needs, email [email protected].
