Volunteers in an area of Vermont hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene are pitching in to help people affected by Hurricane Sandy. Mad River Long Term Recovery chairman Asah Rowles said volunteers will be collecting coats, hats, gloves, hoodies, and blankets outside the Shaw’s supermarket in Waitsfield on Tuesday from noon to 7 p.m. She said those cold-weather items are the only ones the group will be able to accept.
