Were You Helped During the Storm? Say Thank You on Patch

Recognize that friend, family or stranger that helped you during or after the Oct. 29 storm.

Were You Helped During the Storm? Say Thank You on Patch

We heard a lot of stories this week about neighbors helping neighbors this week.

Did someone let you crash on their couch? Cook you a warm meal? Take care of your dog? Shovel you out? Let you watch your favorite TV show while your cable was out? Give you a ride?

We know you've probably thanked them in person, but here's your chance to thank them again, for the community to see.

I heard stories of town employees sleeping for just a few scant hours over the weekend in order to keep warming shelters open for stranded train passengers and seniors.

I've heard stories of neighbors lending extra parts to others so they could run their generators, friends welcoming others into their homes and families cooking for relatives who needed a hot meal.

Local businesses, municiplities and politicans did what they could to help as well. Fire departments lit dark streets with engine lights. Volunteers helped to run warming centers. Daisy Hill Farm and the Bedford Hills Neighborhood Association donated food and funds.

Who helped you during the storm?
