Volunteers needed: Dexter tornado cleanup blitz continues Sunday
Work started on Saturday as at least 500 people showed up to help clear brush and debris from the areas affected by the March 15 tornado.
However, hundreds of additional volunteers were needed.
“We think the threat of (bad) weather kept people away,” said volunteer coordinator Niki Polzin.
Adults willing to lift brush and debris or man a chainsaw are sought. Also needed are people with trucks or trailers that can help with hauling.
However, children should be left at home due to the heavy equipment, Polzin said.
Transportation is set up at Hudson Mills, with continuous service during the hours of the cleanup effort. Volunteers who cannot stay for the entire time will be able to find a ride back to their vehicle, Polzin said.
In addition, volunteers are asked not to use Dexter-Pinckney Road. Part of the road remains closed, and a portion of the cleanup is targeting that route.
