Community members are seeking to raise awareness and funds for those impacted by Tropical Storm Irene.
“The Band” fundraiser concept is based on blue silicone wrist bands with a printed message, ADK Irene Relief.
“My hope is to facilitate the raising of both awareness and money for residents, businesses and organizations who were in Irene’s destructive path,” Dawn Klotzko, resident of Upper Jay, said.
Klotzko is currently seeking organization groups to volunteer to collect donations in exchange for the bands at organization events. The bands would be distributed to organizations throughout the Adirondacks, at no cost to the vendor. The recommended donation/retail price for the band will be $5 with 100 percent of the proceeds going to relief efforts.
The community hopes to gather much needed funds to rebuild a region still reeling from unprecedented flooding.
