Organizations collecting donations for Ellicott City flood victims

From Baltimore-

St. Peter's Episcopal Church in old Ellicott City is many things to many people these days -- a staging area for residents and business owners to get back on Main Street, and both outside and inside a donation-distribution site.

"Every time we say, 'Oh we need to go get,' it just appears. It's great," said Katherine Schnorrenberg, with St. Peter's Episcopal Church.

Schnorrenberg, a junior warden of the church, said response has been incredible with donations from all denominations.

"(There are) boxes of water bottles and cleaning supplies, and yesterday Ace Hardware dropped off 30 wheelbarrows. There are two left, I will point out, and shovels," Schnorrenberg said.

More donations came in from the Howard County Food Bank in Columbia. Within four hours of Sunday's devastation, more than 51,000 pounds of supplies came in to help flood victims.
