        We’re working on coordinating people with supplies and such to get involved. We’ll definitely get you involved somewhere. Thanks for reaching out.

        Following Rte. 7 from Middlebury (with detour around Brandon, follow Rte. 7 S Detour signs) will get you into downtown Rutland City, and this response center on Strongs Ave. I made the drive from Williston last night with no snags.
        Good luck,

        P.S. If you have any questions, give me a call 802-236-8337

    Howdy! I live in Brandon…. I would love to be able to help out someway. I have a wheelbarrow, shovel, pick-up truck, plus I am pretty young and strong too, willing to do whatever 🙂 I’m not sure how to get in touch with the right people. I called the women’s shelter earlier and they seemed real stand-offish, so I’m thinking they’re not real hot on getting people in there.
    My email address is
    my cell # is 1-207-299-4135
    Please contact me if/where/how I can help. I will probably go down to this center tomorrow to see if they need me…. My vacation was cancelled due to Miss Irene- so I have a good two weeks of “free-time” It’s all yours, Vermont!!
    with love,

      Hi Mark:
      Thanks for your offer of help. Please keep checking the site for help needed information and consider adding yourself to the forums to connect with others. We will be reorganizing those forums by area of the state later this morning, but they are a good way to share your skills and connect with other helping hands in your area.

  14. Andrea Trombley says:

    Do you have specific supplies that you need? I have a group here in the Burlington area that wants to help, and I am planning on coming down on Saturday with the donations, but we would love to get you just what you need. There are 4 of us coming down, so if you need help in the resource center, we can help, or we can be sent out to help.

  15. Kim says:

    Hi, I’m Kim and would like to volunteer during the day ( I work @ 4). I can be @ the Strongs Ave location whenever and might be able to help get food donations thru local restaurants.
