LOVELAND —At the peak of the Thursday afternoon heat, about 25 volunteers were working in the sun at the Budweiser Events Center, filling thousands of 35- to 40-pound sandbags.
With the help of volunteers and donations from Larimer County, Serve 6.8, a local disaster-response organization, is providing sandbags for residents in the High Park burn scar and the Big Thompson Canyon — as well as anyone else who feels they need them.
“We approached the county a few months ago and asked if they had been thinking about spring runoff and thunderstorms,” said Zane Strange, disaster response director of Serve 6.8.
Serve 6.8, a religious service organization, has already delivered about 15,000 sandbags to the Big Thompson Canyon, according to Strange.
