Samaritan’s Purse is requesting more volunteers to assist with sawing downed trees and limbs and moving them for county cleanup efforts.
Volunteers should check in at the Samaritan’s Purse tent at the Louisville Coliseum at 201 Ivy Ave. or go online to http://www.samaritanspurse.org/.
All volunteers are encouraged to check in at the coliseum, which will enable local officials to document volunteer work hours for essential compensation to the city and county from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
Make safety a top priority by wearing protective clothing such as long pants, hard sole shoes, gloves, hats and safety goggles when appropriate. Drink plenty of water and take breaks to prevent accidents cause by exhaustion.
Financial donations for disaster relief may be made through Renasant Bank or online at http://winstonstrong.com/.
