SLC: Volunteers NEEDED today

Well, I am aware it is not Saturday for the usual Saturday Service post, but I thought this was important to post.

If you live in or are visiting SLC, you are probably aware of the severe flooding going on right now. WEll, on the news last night and in this mornings newspaper, they are calling for volunteers to help fill sandbags. They ask you to bring shovels if you have them.

TO HELP, meet at Cottonwood Heights Elementary School, 2415 E. Bengal (7530 South) Blvd. in Cottonwood Heights. And for updated information you can go here.
