Sandbagging volunteers desperately needed in St. Francois Xavier
WINNIPEG — If you are looking for something to do this weekend, consider helping out in the flood zone.
The rural municipality of St. Francois Xavier has put out a plea for volunteers to help fill sandbags.
Water along the Assiniboine River is quickly rising and putting homes at risk.
The RM has a sandbagging machine that is going to the different affected properties.
Officials ask people who want to help to call 204-864-2871 to find out where they should go.
St. Francois Xavier is west of Winnipeg, just past Headingley.
