The Daily Mail is reporting today that an electrical fire gutted the Matthew 25 food bank in Catskill, destroying refrigerators, freezers and foodstock.

Volunteers have begun clean-up, and organizers report they will relocate, but money and donations are needed. The Matthew 25 food bank, founded in 2009, moved to its current location on Main Street from West Bridge Street last August.

The food bank is accepting donations via PayPal on their website.
