ORANGE - A local company is stepping up to help after a shooting spree that left nine people dead in Manchester earlier this week.

Dichello Distributors, on Marsh Hill Road in Orange, is offering to send trucks and employees to help cover Hartford Distributors' orders while its employees grieve.

Ed Crowley, owner of Dichello Distributors, says that the industry is very close-knit and that after watching what happened on TV, he knew he had to do something to help.

Hartford Distributors has more than 1,600 clients who all need their orders filled.
