Palo Alto Sandbag Saturday, November 20, 2010

Original post made by Paul, The Greenhouse, on Nov 13, 2010

Palo Alto community members are needed to help make and deliver sandbags to their neighbors who can not do the work themselves. On Saturday, November 20, 2010 volunteers are invited to again help their community and their neighbors at the 10th annual Sandbag Saturday.

Sandbag Saturday will take place at the Palo Alto Municipal Services Center (MSC) at 3201 E. Bayshore Road, Palo Alto, from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Volunteers should follow this link Web Link and select the appropriate free "ticket" to sign up for one (or more!) 2-hour shifts. Shifts are from 10am – Noon, Noon – 2 pm, and 2 pm – 4 pm.

You may sign up for more than one shift by selecting more than one ticket type.
If you are signing up for more than one person, please:
• Enter a quantity of one ticket for each shift desired for yourself,
• Complete your selection by clicking Registration
• Start a second registration for the next person, again limiting the selection to 1 ticket per shift for each person.

Volunteers may perform one of two tasks: filling sandbags or assisting fellow residents who are unable to get sandbags to their homes. You will be asked for your preference (Make, Load or Either) after you make your ticket/shift selection by clicking Registration.

If you are a Palo Alto resident and need assistance lifting sandbags, there will be volunteers there willing to help. Please go to MSC after 11AM and request help.

High school students note: you can receive community service credit for participating in Sandbag Saturday.

The City’s big yellow sandbagging machine will be in operation so gloves, hardhats and safety goggles are required and will be provided as needed.

For more information on Sandbag Day 2010, please call (650) 617-3197.

Come help your community and your neighbors prepare for the next big winter storm.

The included link doesn't seem to work.

I would suggest being familiar with the "EventBrite" privacy policy before having to register with yet another website:

This link does however get you to the event registration:
