Those looking to help with the cleanup efforts should head to Saturday at 8:30 a.m. That’s when volunteer groups will gather before being organized to go out to about a dozen “hotspots”—areas of the community affected by the severe weather.

The efforts are being coordinated by officials at in Dallas, and Saturday’s work will be centered around debris cleanup in the 9-mile stretch that the storms impacted. Volunteers participating in debris cleanup will need to bring wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, gloves, chainsaws and other items appropriate for removing trees, tree limbs and trash.

Work is also continuing all week long. Those looking for specific areas to serve can call 678-792-4488. Church officials say that phone line has received dozens of calls from around the Southeast since Saturday, including calls from residents who were impacted—the latter group, they say, receives priority. Officials add that callers should be patient in waiting for calls back.

For more information on Saturday’s efforts, call West Ridge Pastor Paul Richardson at 678-792-4488.
