ST. CLOUD -- Volunteers are being asked to help the sandbagging efforts in the Fargo-Moorhead area Saturday.

There are local buses scheduled to leave St. Cloud at 6:00 a.m. and return approximately 7:00 p.m. the same day. 40 volunteers are needed to fill each bus.

The group will leave from the St. Cloud Holiday Inn parking lot. You should arrive by 5:30 a.m.

If you go, bring with you waterproof boots, long pants, long sleeve shirt and a change of clothes. You will be helping build sandbag dikes which is taxing, physical work.

To sign up, log on to the United Way's website at or call Mary Krippner at the United Way at 252-0227.
