Rep. Annette Glenn of Midland is forming the “Hero Helpers,” a group of volunteers who will spend the coming days and weeks working to provide relief to flood-affected residents of the Midland area. Teams will focus their efforts on clean up, community outreach in the affected areas, and transportation to those in need.
“Our family, friends, and neighbors are hurting,” Glenn said. “People have lost their homes, possessions, and sense of safety and security. However, we must never lose our sense of community. We’ll take care of each other, in good times and bad. A tremendous amount of people have reached out to me and offered to provide supplies or a helping hand. This is the community I know and love, and we will get through this together.”
Teams will begin volunteer work on Friday, May 22, meeting at 9:00 a.m. at the Midland County Building (220 West Ellsworth St. in Midland) and will continue working over the coming weeks as necessary. Those interested can email HeroHelpers98@gmail.com for more information and to sign up. This email address can also be used to request assistance. Volunteers are encouraged to wear boots and bring work gloves, rakes, wheelbarrows, and any other equipment they believe would be useful.
