People of all ages are helping to fill sandbags today in Colorado Springs. The sandbags are being given to homeowners that could be impacted by flooding after the Waldo Canyon Fire.
Cindy Aubrey with the City of Colorado Springs said about 100 volunteers have showed up to help with the event.
The 20-30 pound sandbags are being given away at the Verizon Wireless building located at 2424 Garden of the Gods Road from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
People who want to pick up sandbags should enter the Verizon Wireless parking lot off of Flying W Ranch Road.
In a press release, the city recommended that resident consult a certified erosion and sediment control contractor to manage flood mitigation on their property. The city said sandbags should not be placed in the public right-of-way.
