Volunteers needed to remove sandbags

The Salvation Army called all volunteers to the neighboorhoods recently flooded by the Red River Thursday to help remove sandbags.

Residents of Fargo and Moorhead need help removing about a million sandbags, said the Star Tribune.

Annette Bauer, the charity's spokeswoman, told the Star Tribune that help is needed.

"The outlook for a swell of volunteers is bleak," she said.

Volunteers need to be available on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m, be able to lift 25 pounds continually and be willing to get dirty. Volunteers should report to the old Wal-Mart in Dilworth, Minn.

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is also asking volunteers to report to the area on April 25 and May 2, said the Pioneer Press.
