Here at Patch, an integral part of our mission is to connect local volunteers with local volunteer opportunities.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, there's plenty of folks who need help out there ... perhaps an elderly neighbor needs help cleaning up his yard, or a local shelter needs staffers, or an environmental group needs extra pairs of hands to remove debris and seaweed from the ravaged beaches.
So we'd like to provide this space for you to help each other connect and we've also created a Facebook Page, Cleanup Branford, where you can talk to your neighbors about Sandy cleanup.
Groups who are doing clean-up or outreach, let people know. If you want to volunteer, tell us about any special skills or equipment you have (got a chainsaw?).
One reminder: Don't put sensitive information such as addresses and phone numbers in the comments unless you're comfortable with it being public.
