Labor Day Weekend Plans

We will be sifting through rubble on Sunday and Monday and would love any help that we could get. Because of city codes, we cannot use a back-ho like was previously planned, so we will be shoveling out debris into small piles for people to sift through and put anything that is recognizable into boxes. We will start around 9 a.m. on Sunday and work until at least 5. It is probably best to come in shifts of two hours to conserve energy (emotional and physical) as well as resources.

We will need shovels, gloves, wheelbarrows, boxes (or plastic tubs), and masks. We would also be really grateful if someone could bring in some food for those helping out.

Times:
Sunday
9-11
11-1
1-3
3-5

Monday
9-11
11-1
1-3
3-5

  3. Brooke & Dan-
    Thanks for planning the weekend support by putting times on your site. I'm coming with a few teachers from Riverglen to the early shift (9-11) and we'll bring some food and giftcards that you can use as you need.
    What a beautiful gesture from the St. Al's group (giving you a baby shower). There are so many good people in this world. It really gets you all choked up!!!

    Julie and I will be there for the 1-3 shift on Monday. I also have an offer for a crib and mattress, and a portable crib if that would help. I have several plastic boxes I will also bring for sorting items. Heidi
