WILLMAR -- United Way of West Central Minnesota, Calvary Lutheran Church and the local faith community are coordinating an effort to send volunteers to the Fargo-Moorhead area to help clean up the millions of sandbags used to protect the community from flooding.

Buses will leave Calvary Lutheran Church at 6 a.m. Sunday and will return around 8 p.m.

Volunteers should dress appropriately; bring gloves, water and face masks if wanted. Food will be provided on cleanup sites.

To register, call Calvary Lutheran Church at 235-2508. Youth groups are welcome but must provide their own chaperones.
