From business owners to residents, the in total flooding may have brought Ellicott City to its knees, but people are still fighting to recover.

"When this first happened, I felt compelled to do something," said Pete Burch who lives on Main St. in Ellicott City and works as a graphic designer.

Friday, he said he brought 65 shirts he designed for people to buy at a fundraiser being held next to "The Wine Bin," a liquor store, and was sold out by evening.

"The shirts have been on sale for about a month. We had them online and I had some printed for this event. We sold out in the first half hour," Burch said

Additionally, a beer called "Watershed Moment," jointly brewed by the Flying Dog and the Jailbreak Brewing Company was being sold to benefit flood recovery efforts.

It also had sold out by evening.
