MORE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED ON THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY TO ASSIST WITH CONTINUING HALLAM, LANCASTER COUNTY CLEANUP EFFORT
Lancaster County Emergency Management and Volunteer Partners are requesting an additional 200 to 250 volunteers on Thursday, June 10 through Saturday, June 12 to assist with the continuing cleanup effort in Hallam and other parts of Lancaster County. No individual volunteers are being recruited for today through Wednesday due to the cleanup operation now being in the "heavy equipment phase."
Volunteers must check in at the Emergency Volunteer Center at the Princeton Countryside Alliance Church, 24005 South 12th Street, in Princeton. They can check in as early as 7:30 a.m. and up until 1 p.m. Volunteers will be checked in at the church and bused to assigned areas for cleanup.
A daily summary and breakdown of volunteers registered in Princeton, as well as other information regarding the disaster cleanup effort, can be found on the county website, lancaster.ne.gov, by clicking on the "Lancaster Co. Disaster Relief Effort" link.
Individuals wishing to volunteer will need to wear proper clothing, including gloves and heavy shoes. Sun screen and bug spray are also recommended.
Any groups wanting to volunteer are encouraged to call the Emergency Volunteer Center at Princeton Countryside Alliance Church with your group name, group total, date and time when your group is available, as well as any resources or equipment the group can bring.
