Des Moines residents help with Cedar Rapids flood clean-up

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Residents from the Des Moines area will be in Cedar Rapids all week to help with flood-cleanup as part of a mission trip.

31 volunteers from five Des Moines area churches will be knocking down walls, painting, flooring and assisting in the recovery efforts through Friday.

Some of the group originally planned to assist with relief efforts in Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina, but plans changed when seeing the scope of flooding in the Cedar Rapids area.

St. Anne's Presbyterian Church is hosting the volunteers this week.
