I couldn't imagine what the residents in Houston are going through. Don't feel like you can't make a difference in helping someone who has had to abandon their home and belongings. You can help right here in the Hudson Valley.
You may be seeing Houston and many of its victims in the news as they face of hurricane Harvey. You can hashtag your thoughts or even change your filter on Facebook. Keeping someone in your thoughts is always nice but see how you can help here locally.
The upcoming blood drive at the Italian Community Center in Poughkeepsie will of course help to replenish blood supplies in the Hudson Valley. But, this drive will also commemorate the life of one of Poughkeepsie's finest.
