Dalrymple asks for volunteers

Gov. Jack Dalrymple on Tuesday encouraged state agencies, businesses and the public to support volunteer efforts for Minot-area flood recovery.

Dalrymple has asked state agency directors to allow employees one day to volunteer in Minot and the surrounding area where many residents are left with flood-damaged homes. He also encouraged business leaders to get involved by allowing their employees time to volunteer as well. Dalrymple has asked state agency directors to schedule employee leave for flood recovery work so that agency operations are not affected.

People who want to help should schedule volunteer service and to learn how to prepare for flood-recovery work. Volunteers should register with the Minot Recovery Coordination Center. The center's coordinators know where and when volunteers are needed most. Register to volunteer online at or by calling 701-858-9366. The Minot Recovery Coordination Center is located in the Minot Municipal Auditorium, 420 Third Ave. SW. The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Monday.
