Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It's early in the fight but hundreds of volunteers are needed at Sandbag Central.

The biggest need is in the hours between 3 and 7 p.m.

Local students are filling the morning and afternoon shifts. Eighth graders from Discovery Middle school lent some muscle today.

About 300 volunteers are needed each hour to keep operations fully up and running. Right now only about 50 volunteers are signed up for tonight.

Volunteers are needed to answer phones, direct volunteers, help at the shuttle, and most of all to fill sandbags.

Sheila Borgerding, Volunteer Center Director: “We still need about 250 throughout the whole time, so we really really need volunteers to step up and come out and help us out.”

To set up a time for you or your group to volunteer, call (701) 476-4000.
