Cleanup efforts available in Windom

In a press release by Windom Area Schools, the district said there are clean-up efforts underway throughout the community.

Community members have stepped up throughout the last week helping their friends, family, and neighbors with flooding preparation and now clean-up. The district wants to extend gratitude to volunteers who have been aiding the community.

The city of Windom will continue to coordinate requested resources with volunteer groups and organizations as available.

There is a Volunteer Flooding group located at the former Connection building at 948 4th Avenue in Windom.

This group will be leading many volunteer clean-up efforts, as possible, throughout the community.

Those who need clean-up service in their home can call Diane at (507) 221-0278 or Hilary at (507) 822-3849 to get on their list for this group’s service.

In addition, Crisis Cleanup operates the Minnesota Flooding Cleanup Hotline at (218)288-2213. This is not a guaranteed service but there are several organizations and groups in the community monitoring the reports here.

Call this hotline to be added to a multi-organizational list for free service. This list will be available to local volunteer groups.

During clean-up, homeowners are requested to retain pictures of damage and discarded items for insurance and assessment purposes.

For homeowners completing their own clean-up, the University of Minnesota has published a comprehensive guide on flooding clean-up available at: https://extension.umn.edu/flooding/cleaning-after-flood
