Team Effort to Clean-up Minot

Team Effort to Clean-up Minot

Posted: Updated:

The task of cleaning up parts of Minot continued throughout the city.

Today was the second day of the River Valley Clean-Up project.

Enbridge, Petroleum Council and the City of Minot came together to clean lots effected by the 2011 flood.

Despite some warm weather about 75 volunteers came out to help clean up yesterday and today seemed to have a good turnout as well.

The project will clean about 90 lots throughout the city.

Tessa Sandstrom says there has been quite a few walk-up volunteers including about a dozen Air Force Base service members.

She says it's important to give back to the city.

(Tessa Sandstrom, Communication Manger, Petroleum Council) "We are always happy to help. Minot is a huge support community for a lot of the oil and gas development. Whether it's through businesses having their headquarters here, employees living here and so they support us a lot and we want to help them."

It was a true team effort today.

For the past two Summers the Red Cross has provided meals to those helping to rebuild following the flood called the Rebuild Minot Project.

Lunches, ice cold water and donuts were provided for the volunteers from the Red Cross.

While the project officially ended last week, it didn't stop some volunteers from continuing to perform good deeds.

Sandstrom says this is just the kick-off to cleaning up.

They plan on having several more of these events in the near future.
