The University of North Dakota has sent a bus full of students to Minot Sunday, Sept. 25, to help in the aftermath of that city’s devastating summer flood. The UND students left at 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning and will return to UND at 10 p.m.
UND Student Government arranged for the bus to take student volunteers to Minot to help remove water-damaged drywall and flooring from homes affected by the flood.
“Minot State University’s student government asked us to send volunteers to work alongside their students to win the fight against the flood,” said Carter Hill, UND Student Government’s Public Relations Coordinator, told UND’s Dakota Student.
“I’m going,” Hill told the Dakota Student. “It means a lot to me because it means so much more to them. To see the devastation and damage, and to be able to help those affect by the flood, it means so much.”
“I know a lot of people in Minot,” Shane Gerbert, one of the many students planning on participating in the efforts, told the Dakota Student. “I want to help them however I can.”
