HOLMEN, Wis. - A local woman is sending help out east for people battling the cold.
Holmen resident Judy Wolff has been making scarves, hats, and little toys for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Wolff understands the hardships. She helped in New York City as a Red Cross volunteer following the attacks on 9-11.
For the past three days, she's made a couple dozen items that will be shipped out this week in time for the holiday season.
Wolff says it will be a welcome gift, almost like opening up a new toy. "A lot of them aren't going to get the hats and scarves, and mittens that they need, and they need that kind of stuff with the cold weather that's coming up," said Wolff.
Everything she's made will be distributed next week.
