Rescue Mission of Utica making another trip downstate to help with relief efforts

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Rescue Mission of Utica is gearing up for another trip downstate, this time to help three different rescue missions who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Three vans are headed down this weekend, each filled with water, bleach, work gloves and some food. All of the items being delivered were specifically requested by the missions in need.

"You would think that it would take away from around here, but it doesn't," said Reverend Bill Dodge of the Rescue Mission of Utica. "People understand there are needs everywhere. This is happening all over. We are grateful for the way the Mohawk Valley has stepped up with their big heart to the people in need. It's a reflection, as we know the Mohawk Valley does all the time."

Reverend Bill Dodge says these supplies will go to the people who are working to get things back up and running again.
