A Endicott family featured on the CBS Evening News is being showered with support.

Mark and Brenda Hudy shared their story for the segment, "The Other America."

Mark was injured on the job and hasn't been able to work.

They've fallen behind on their bills and recently had to start going to a food bank for help.

After the story aired last night, the response has been overwhelming.

The Hudy's say the phone is ringing off the hook.

A local businesses has even offered Brenda an interview for a better paying job.

"I just didn't even expect the amount of people that are calling and reaching out because going through this the last couple years its been very hard for our family and we like lost faith in America and people and stuff so just putting my story out like this and being overwhelmed is just wonderful." says Brenda Hudy.

The Hudy's are accepting any donations by mail at 1001 Broad Street in Endicott, 13760

They also appreciate emotional support.
