People, churches, nonprofits, and businesses are banding together to help out people in need.

Folks from my church recently joined in the clean-up efforts of Red Hook with the Red Hook Initiative, an organization that just won the NY Nonprofit Excellence Award. If you're looking for more ways to help out - both conventional and non-conventional - check out this list.
