After the Storm

How you can help victims of Hurricane Irene
Vermont RVers are soliciting public assistance for an RV campground devastated by Hurricane Irene. Residents are asking people to show support for Abel Mountain Campground  in Braintree, Vermont, by volunteering to help clean up the property and sending letters to state officials. Without assistance, the campground will close its doors.
Here’s a sample letter and links to Vermont’s governor and U.S and state representatives and senators.
I’m writing to express my concern about the welfare of a Vermont family, Paul and Karen Rea. Paul and Karen own Abel Mountain Campground, an RV park in Braintree. The campground was devastated by the flooding caused by Hurricane Irene. Without financial help, the Reas won’t be able to reopen this campground.
Abel Mountain Campground caters to RVing families, and every aspect of the campground is run by the Rea family. Karen manages the business and organizes activities. Paul updates and maintains the campground. And the children perform many tasks on the property.
This campground is Paul and Karen’s livelihood. There was no insurance they could have purchased that would have covered them in a disaster like what they’ve experienced. Without assistance, not only will Paul and Karen lose all that they’ve worked so hard to acquire, but many RVing families will lose a favorite camping destination.
