Hundreds of volunteers sign up for Rocky Mountain Flood Relief Day, organizers say

LONGMONT, Colo. - More than 500 people have signed up to participate in today's Rocky Mountain Relief Day project, organizers said.

Keller Williams associates across the Colorado Region will join volunteers to clean up local communities -- including shoveling mud and clearing debris, according to Ben Grisinger, CEO of Kellers Williams Park Meadows office.

Volunteers are asked to meet at the Life Bridge Christian Church at 10345 Ute Highway (Highway 66) in Longmont.  The event is scheduled to last from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"All volunteers are welcome, family, friends, clients, affiliates the more the merrier!" the Facebook post reads.

"You don't have to commit to the whole day come for as long as you can," organizers wrote.

Volunteers are asked bring their own snacks, water bottle, sun screen and work gloves. Shovels, rakes, garbage bags, buckets, hammers, masks and pickup trucks are also requested.  A sack lunch and water will be provided.

Organizers said people who can't do hard physical labor are still welcome to come, saying, "We will need help with organizing work crews."

Colorado Keller Williams associates said they will concentrate their efforts in the Longmont area, "where the need is greatest and where they can make the biggest impact as a volunteer force."
