Catholic United Response volunteers called to help

Catholic United Response will be joining the Cannon Falls Police Department for a coordinated volunteer cleanup taking place Saturday, Sept. 29th to help address damage done by a severe storm that occurred the week prior.

Volunteers are asked to help from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 29, with lunch provided to cleanup volunteers. Catholic United volunteers can come to the Catholic United Response Truck and Trailer to receive personal protective equipment and tools.

Volunteers should check-in at the Check-in/Food site, in the Park and Ride Lot located at the 621 Main St. W (address can be used in GPS), between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Catholic United Response Truck and Trailer will be located in the Park and Ride lot. The city has created work zones and arranged for additional trucks and chippers to make brush clean up more efficient. The Salvation Army will be setting up a canteen to provide lunch for checked-in volunteers.

Volunteer Information:

Please check-in to receive information on where you will be sent to help and dress for the weather on Saturday. Children under 18 should be with an adult. If possible please carpool to limit congestion in areas.

Personal Protective gear and tools will be provided by Catholic United Response for our volunteers. Please feel free to bring the following items if you wish:

· Gloves
· Eye protection

Persons with trucks and/or trailers may bring them to help haul brush. Unless part of a trained and approved tree service or group, please do not bring chainsaws or other cutting equipment.
