Volunteers needed for Sunday tornado relief work

By Northern Star staff

About 250 volunteers are needed noon to 4:30 p.m. Sunday to help with tornado relief.

All volunteers must be 15 or older, and those younger than 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Volunteers must wear hard-soled boots or shoes and long pants. Those not in the permitted volunteer attire will not be able to participate.

Students should arrive at the Convocation Center no later than 11:45 a.m. Volunteers are not permitted to bring personal vehicles to avoid over-crowding at the site, but they are permitted to park their personal vehicles at the north end of the parking lot at the Convocation Center in LOT C3. Buses to the volunteer area will depart at noon from the Convocation Center, LOT C3.

Volunteers are also able to help 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday at 3891 Route 72 in Kirkland.
