Volunteers are needed to help clean homes in Hamburg, Iowa Saturday morning. Although hard work kept floodwater from the town this summer, many homes were still damaged by mold because the power was out in some areas for an extended period of time.
Volunteers should gather at the Hamburg Baptist Church at 1501 Main Street at 8:30am Saturday. After an orientation meeting, volunteers will be assigned a job. Any special equipment needed, including gloves and masks, will be provided.
Kelley Courtney Randolph is helping with Saturday’s event. She has asked volunteers to register ahead of time only to help organizers prepare enough food for volunteers. The number to call is 712-579-6101. Registering is not necessary.
Some of the jobs volunteers might be asked to do include cleaning out basements and removing carpet and drywall from homes.
