Helping during the hurricane…
Hopefully you all have your emergency kits ready and are prepared for Hurricane Irene.
If this storm is anything like Isabel, there will be a lot of work to do after the hurricane blows through. If you want to help in the aftermath, call the Rappahannock United Way at 540/373-0041. Volunteer coordinator Shelby Beck said that if you want to help, they’ll have a job for you.
