There is another option available to those in need of help with clean-up and removal of flood damaged materials from their basements.

The group called Samaritan’s Purse has sent one of its disaster relief units to the area and is recruiting volunteers.

“We’re very happy to have Samaritan’s Purse come to assist our residents,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Their long experience with Canadian disaster relief will be a big help to people struggling to recover from this flood.”

The Disaster Relief Unit is a tractor trailer outfitted with essential disaster recovery equipment including generators, pumps, hand tools, and safety gear for volunteers. It also serves as a volunteer coordination centre and is equipped with a self-contained office, communications system, and other supplies.

Anyone who needs assistance or wants to volunteer to clean up flooded homes can call Samaritan’s Purse at 1-866-628-6565.
