On Saturday, January 12th, beginning at 7:00 am, volunteers will be meeting at the Collinsville High School Commons Area in an effort to assist in picking up brush and debris from curbsides throughout the community. If you or any organization you are affiliated with can help out in this effort, it would be greatly appreciated. We will need trucks, trailers and people to make this effort a success. Food will be served by volunteers at the high school and assignments will be handed out there as well. This is a joint effort involving the City of Collinsville, Collinsville Chamber of Commerce, Collinsville Downtown, Inc., churches and organizations.

Please call this office at 371-4703 to sign up for this community-wide effort. This will involve ONLY curbside pickup of branches and debris from the recent ice storm, so no equipment other than trucks and trailers for loading and hauling will be needed.

Please forward this information on to those on your e-mail list; we need to get the word out far and wide.

Thank you.

Combined Call For Volunteers By
Chamber of Commerce, Collinsville Downtown Inc, Churches, and Other Organizations
Due to liability concerns, this effort will be limited to picking up brush and limbs from curbside. Limbs still hanging in trees or inside fenced areas will not be addressed by this volunteer effort.
In order to coordinate the Jan. 12th efforts all volunteers should report to the High School at 7am Saturday Jan. 12th and sign-in. If individuals or organizations will contact the Chamber (371-4703) before the 12th, planning and assignments can be pre-planned. Your volunteer hours, equipment use, gasoline, etc. will be logged to help support the city's FEMA disaster cleanup reimbursement claim. The official efforts will wrap up by about 3pm to not interfere with other evening school activities. There should be someone at the school coordinating assignments for any late arriving volunteer.

Clear The Curbs Following
Dec. 9-10 Ice Storm
Representatives from the City, Chamber, Downtown Inc, Schools, Ministerial Alliance and media met Jan. 2, 2008 to nail down plans for the Jan. 12th city-wide cleanup effort. A decision will be made after the 12th to decide if followup Saturday efforts will be required. Pastor Tim Prock reported that the Baptist chainsaw disaster response team (from Tennessee) will be returning soon as they still had 160 requests pending after their first visit to Collinsville.
