Chamber and EDC call for flood volunteers

FARGO – The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber and the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corp. are urging members, investors and their employees to get involved in sandbagging efforts to help prevent spring flooding.

The organizations are asking that members allow their employees to volunteer to sandbag weekdays from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. beginning Wednesday, when sandbag central opens. The city of Fargo wants to fill a million sandbags in 10 days to protect the city to 42.5 feet.

The city of Moorhead does not need to fill additional sandbags at this time.
