An Elton man is using his home to distribute food, canned goods, and supplies to people in need.

Brandon Kelley and several other volunteers come together each day to prepare food and distribute supplies.

They say the site is mainly made up of the local people of Elton who want to help during this difficult time.

"It helps to show that we are all in this together as one. Elton is a super small community. We only have about 1,300 or 1,400 people in this community," said resident Kaleb Lemoine. "So by coming together to do this it shows that we are all together after this hurricane. The only way that we're going to come out of this is working together as one."
