Vermonters pitch in to aid storm victims
Fund-raisers of all sizes being held
A 94-year-old woman from New Orleans who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina sent in a check for $25. Kids at a Vermont elementary school collected coins for a week, raising $2,000. The rock band Phish performed a benefit, raising about $1.2 million. And a man from Northampton, Mass., mailed a check for $500 after driving on flood-ravaged Route 4 in Mendon.
