Executive Director Jennifer Barna said the Foundation is relocating this week from 27 to 236 Washington Street. “Diane Rhine & Associates were very nice to donate the office space to us and to help us out,” adding the location will remain easy to get to and accessible for the public.

“It’s been very strange being on the other end, being the ones that need the help, but the community has been awesome. A lot of people have stepped up to help us from businesses to individuals.” said Barna. Hometown Heroes has raised about $10,000 so far to rebuild. “We’re still taking donations. It’s going to be a long road, but we’ve been very touched by all the support we’ve been getting,” Barna said.

The owners of the charity’s former headquarters at 27 Washington Street are still assessing the situation Barna said and that they’re new location will be permanent for the time being.

Anyone who would like to make a donation to Hometown Heroes can go to www.usahometownheroes.org.
