Yakima, WASH.--As the snow falls, more volunteers are needed to help with relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy victims.
Two Washington Conservation Corps crews from Yakima and Ellensburg landed in New York City last week.
The group from Ellensburg is working at a special needs shelter in Brooklyn. They said they've been providing blankets, taking inventory and giving victims a shoulder to lean on.
Volunteers said with winter coming, more help is needed.
"The storm put down a lot more debris throughout the town, just the weight from the trees and stuff," said Jake Hanson. "The trees were already damaged so the branches were collapsing, and there's still a lot of people that have no where to go."
The crews from Yakima and Ellensburg will be there until the end of the month.
