Chamber Urges Members to Help Fill Additional Sandbags

With new amounts of snowfall in the Red River Valley over the weekend, the City of Fargo has decided to reopen Sandbag Central. The goal is to fill 500,000 additional bags to protect the city.

It is imperative we make this happen so that we can avoid business shut downs and mandatory evacuations. The goal is to have these sandbags filled, stored and ready to go by Friday, April 26.

The Chamber is urging its members and their employees to once again join forces and get involved to fill the additional sandbags needed. We are asking that employers allow their employees to volunteer to sandbag during the hours of 2 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday beginning on Thursday, April 18.

For more information, or to register to volunteer, please contact Julie Yourczek at 218.233.1100 or
