In the midst of rising rivers and flooding streets, 16 Huntington University students chipped in to help Huntington County residents fill sandbags and deliver them across the area. The effort was the result of a Volunteer 911 request through the Friesen Center for Volunteer Services.
The call for help from the city came at 5:30 pm on April 3. The student leader of Volunteer 911 contacted the dorms, and within an hour a team was ready to serve.
The students spent several hours filling sandbags, and made deliveries to residents unable to pick up the sandbags themselves.
