North Dakota and Minnesota Flood Survivors are Still Sandbagging

Submitted by on April 1, 2009 – No Comment

The Salvation Army in the Midwest is still busy helping local residents survive the ongoing flooding – and now, snow – in parts of North Dakota and Minnesota.

Teams in 15 different locations around Jamestown are providing material and spiritual care to volunteers and disaster survivors who are busy sandbagging to keep the water out. Seventy-three volunteers are providing meals, snacks, drinks and a listening ear from eight mobile kitchens in the Fargo / Moorhead area. They’re also distributing disposable cameras so survivors can snap photos of their belongings in case they’re needed later for insurance documentation.

One beleaguered Fargo resident said, “The minute we get totally worn out and disheartened, The Salvation Army shows up.” That’s a wonderful compliment to the volunteers who’ve worked tirelessly these last couple of weeks.

I wish our presence there could stop the floods from happening in the first place. But since that’s not to be, we’re only too happy to help.
