Today in one of the towns hardest hit by Tropical Storm Irene, hundreds of volunteers will be cooking food and handing out much-needed supplies.

They're part of a group called "Heartworks of Vermont."

Heartworks did not begin in Vermont, but its mission was picked up by Lisa Kelly of Manchester. Kelly tells VPR's Mitch Wertlieb that a close friend created the organization to help small communities of people who need it most, after a tragedy that impacted everyone.
