The costs of cleaning up are enormous. From dumpsters that cost $1200 to get, fill and have hauled away, towns are finding that the costs far exceed that which they were prepared for. Please consider donating money to one of the places below to directly support a town or region rebuild from Irene.

    I have a small place in the Northeast Kingdom that, fortunately, was not so damaged as much of the rest of Vermont. I would like to make a financial donation to help with the cleanup. I haven’t been able easily to find how to do so. I’d prefer to donate to a public source (I think one was mentioned during the noon program today, Sat., but I was driving and couldn’t write it down). Any suggestions welcomed.

    With profound admiration for all the hard work folks are doing!
