The Living Well, a mission of the United Methodist Churches of Yates County, will be sending teams to homes that sustained damage in the May flooding, Monday through Thursday, June 23-26 from 6 -9 p.m.

Each team member will have a "The Living Well" ID badge and will be delivering 18 gallon storage totes with information from Yates County Public Health detailing storage solutions for items that were affected by the floods.

If a resident is not home when the team stops by they will find a storage tote at their door with information regarding how to get more totes by stopping into The Living Well at 121 East Elm St. in Penn Yan.

If the resident is home the teams will hopefully be able to identify long term needs regarding repair work needed due to the flood. This information will be collected and analyzed. A work plan will then be developed to meet as many needs as possible given funding available.

Totes will also be available for pick up at The Well on Wednesday, June 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. Anyone who would like to be part of one of these assessment teams is asked to meet at The Well on Monday, June 23 at 3 p.m. for a brief training session.

This community-wide, house-by-house assessment is in collaboration with Keuka Housing Council, Yates County Office of Emergency Management and Yates County Public Health.

Please call 315-521-6883 with any questions or to make sure your home is on the list.
