“This was a storm unlike anything we’ve ever seen,” Buono said.  “We are on a long haul to recovery and we need to do everything we can to help those in need, especially those who have been displaced or are without power and heat.”

 

The office will be collecting non-perishable food, diapers, toiletries, lanterns, flashlights, batteries, and blankets for delivery to needy residents throughout the district.
