Update 3/20/19 9:00pm:
Volunteer Sandbagging will take place this weekend, March 23rd and March 24th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Sandbag operations will be staged on Liberty Street closest to the Post Office and Wing Dam Saloon and you can report there. Please keep in mind that volunteers are needed for many different areas as well as filling sandbags. Volunteers please bring a pair of gloves to work in and if you have an additional shovel that’s great too. Please make sure you mark your equipment to ensure it makes it back to you.
If you would like to help feed and hydrate volunteers please contact Clare Waters at 608-687-8419. Water, gatorade, snacks, bars, sandwiches, etc will all be needed.
Pallets are needed to hold and move sandbags. If you can donate, please contact Gwen Katula 507-459-5547 call or text to arrange where to deliver or be picked up.
Residents impacted by flooding are responsible for protecting their private property. The volunteer sandbagging efforts put forward March 23 and 24 are for residents use. Pallets of sandbags will be brought to your property for you to arrange placement. The city does not provide plastic sheeting or pumps.
