Clean up volunteer efforts continue after the storm

Posted:

The storm may have had many negative affects on the Black Hills but there is something positive that came from it. Folks are coming together and helping their neighbors clean up.  

This weekend was designated as the Black Hills Neighbor Helping Neighbors weekend. Sara Hornlike Volunteer Operations Coordinator for the South Dakota VOAD says volunteers are still needed to help continue storm clean up. Hornlike says "if we could just take 5 minutes out of each other's schedules and check on your neighbor, hey can I help you, you know what it's really going to help the city doing curb side pickup it'll help that go a lot faster"  

School of Mines student Gina Rossi and some classmates understood the importance of helping their Rapid City community.  They spent 3 days cleaning up neighborhoods. Rossi says "it was important that we were involved in the clean up because I personally think that the Rapid City community is very supportive of the School of Mines and the students and our campus, and a lot of the Circle K members realized that as well and so we felt like we wanted to help a community that really supports us."  

If you want to help or you are in need of help cleaning up, call 211.
