As you may know, the July 4th storms and flash floods that hit Burlington and other parts of the state flooded out the Committee on Temporary Shelter’s Daystation. The damage is extensive: computers, donated clothes, tables, chairs, carpets, boxes of paperwork — everything below the 16 inch watermark has been destroyed. The Daystation will be closed for at least a month, leaving all the folks who use the Daystation daily to eat lunch, pick up mail, and use the computers and phones to reach prospective employers and landlords. The Burlington Free Press gives you a good picture of how bad the situation is: As damage estimates rise, COTS closes Day Station after deluge. Donations are needed immediately: paper goods (plates, cups, napkins), plastic utensils, trash bags, disposable serving dishes, moving services. Please bring donations to COTS administrative offices at: 95 North Ave., Burlington (Hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday). Anyone interested in volunteering space, labor, food or other donations should contact COTS at or 864-7402. You can also donate online at
