The point of contact in Highlands is Jennifer Smith Compagni, who is organizing some relief efforts there.
She is the daughter of Bill Smith, past New York State president of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks, and his wife, Carolee, longtime residents of Keeseville who now live in South Carolina.
Along with ice, Jennifer pegged baby food as badly needed.
Numerous restaurants and other businesses are donating ice and financial contributions to cover transportation expenses, Martin said Monday. More funds are needed. Volunteers are sought to help load the truck starting at about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning outside The Pepper restaurant on City Hall Place and 11 a.m. outside the North Country Club in Keeseville.
To help, contact Finnegan at 569-7202 or Martin at 578-7027 by phone or text. Checks made out to the North Country Club can be mailed to the North Country Club, 61 Laflure Lane, Keeseville NY 12944.
