Volunteers are still needed
Many businesses still are in dire need clean-up assistance. By volunteering at a local business or home affected by the flooding you can help them put their lives back into order. Hardware City even has a sign up by Riverside Drive soliciting volunteer assistance from passerbys, the Salvation army still is in need of assistance with the cleanup of both their Thrift Store and Homeless Shelter on Kraft Street, and these are not the only businesses in need of assistance! People and businesses who are affected by the flood still can really use your help.

Even if you can’t volunteer, you can help affected businesses by patronizing them when they re-open. Not only are they bearing the cost of the cleanup, but they also have been closed for over a week as of this point. So consider going to eat a burger at Dairy Queen, Buying a Car or boat at Bill Roberts Automotive & Marine, getting auto parts at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, checking on Insurance deals with the BFS Insurance Group, or doing business with any of the other businesses as they re-open.
