City Of Grand Rapids Asking For Volunteers To Fill Sandbags, Help With Flood Prevention

Facebook, Kaira Williams

Volunteers are planning to work throughout the weekend in Grand Rapids to fill thousands of sandbags as part of an effort to hold off West Michigan floodwaters.

Several media outlets were reporting Friday morning that 1,200 sandbags had already been filled, but the city is hoping to fill 50,000 of them in order to keep the Grand River at bay.

 

Volunteers are assembling at a Grand Rapids wastewater plant garage to work to fill the sandbags, and the City is asking for as many people to volunteer as possible. City workers are delivering sand to the site and transporting filled bags to points along the river.

If you’re interested in helping out with the sandbag filling effort, you can sign up to help here: GR Flood Sandbag Volunteer Sign Up.
