Who: Groups and individuals 16+ can sign up now on United Way’s Volunteer Portal and become United Way Sandbag Bus Volunteers!


When Spring hits, as many northern Minnesotans know, there can often be a lot of flooding. This year has been especially hard on our northernmost neighbors and it is within our power to do something to help. United Way is piling up Iron Ranger Volunteers in the Sandbag Bus to pack and set sandbags to help prevent further damage. We encourage everyone with time to spare to assist in this endeavor because when our neighbors suffer, so do we.
