Local workers continue to help in Sandy aftermath

Volunteers from Michiana continue to serve those in need along the East Coast.

They're working to help rebuild areas that were destroyed.

From providing shelter, to supplying food and running water, Michiana volunteers have been busy. The latest numbers show about 9,000 people slept in Red Cross shelters in New York and New Jersey.   

They're partially being run by a Red Cross director from Elkhart.

“One of our people, actually a staff member who was deployed last week from S. Joseph County, reported that they just received power, internet and television, at the shelter that he was running on Saturday,” said Rebekah DeLine, Director of the St. Joe County Red Cross. “I'm sure that's not an isolated incident.

South Bend-based “Feed the Hungry” is also helping out. It has delivered 200,000 pounds of goods to those in need.
