Team Rubicon is in Duluth this week

Tuesday, August 2, Team Rubicon, a rapid response team comprised of veterans giving back to the community following disasters, will be in Duluth this week. They are in need of more volunteers to join them in cleaning up debris.

Interested volunteers are to check in by 8:00 a.m. on August 2 at the Duluth Heights Community Center located at 33 W. Mulberry Street to be assigned to work teams.

Volunteers are encouraged to work as much of their day as possible. All volunteers, must be available to start at 8:00 a.m.

Assignments will include hauling tree and brush, which may require bending, stooping, heavy-lifting, and walking on uneven terrain. Volunteers are asked to bring along gloves and safety glasses, if available. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required.

Dress for the weather and wear sunscreen and bug spray.
