2019 Flood Sandbagging Update – More volunteers needed!

Sandbagging will continue through the afternoon and also starting at 10 a.m. on Friday outside the Windom Arena.

Approximately 4,000 bags were completed during the morning shift!

Much of the work was completed by Windom students, who were bused over by the school district to assist with the effort. More volunteers are needed this afternoon!

Residents are advised to wear gloves, closed-toe shoes and proper clothing for the outdoor operation.

Once the first 15,000 bags are filled for city-related infrastructure (which is expected to wrap up sometime Friday) residents will be able to fill bags for their own property. About 10,000 bags are available for the public to use.
