Volunteer center to open Monday for tornado recovery help in W. Springs

WESSINGTON SPRINGS (AP) — A volunteer center to coordinate tornado recovery efforts in Wessington Springs will open Monday.

Public safety officials say the center will open at 8 a.m. at the Wessington Springs Elementary School.

Mayor Melissa Mebius says volunteers for general debris cleanup and cash donations are needed.

Authorities are asking those interested in volunteering to register at the center. They say the most convenient access to the school is into town on 383rd Avenue from Highway 34 and then west on 2nd Street Northeast.

Volunteers are being asked to bring their own gloves, rakes, sun screen, pants and hard-sole shoes.

Cash donations designated to the Wessington Springs Relief Fund may be dropped off at American Bank & Trust locations in Wessington Springs, Alpena, Huron, Wolsey, Miller, Huron-Walmart, Pierre, Mellette and De Smet.
