Need For Help Still Urgent

The Helping Hands of NY Food Pantry is an essential food lifeline for hundreds of residents of the Eastern Catskill region of New York State.

This area was devastated after tropical storms Irene and Lee. Homes, businesses and cropland were destroyed in this and surrounding regions, which had never seen anything on this scale.

National media has not followed up on this story.

Rebuild 123 is an organization that is helping people find, and offer help. This video spotlights The Helping Hands Food Pantry, which donates food to residents in at least 20 towns.

The need for help is still there. Rebuild 123 is a website that tells you exactly how to help.
