What MDS Will Do:

MDS volunteers will be staying at River Valley Community Church in Grand Forks. Sleeping accommodations, washroom facilities and dining facilities will be in the church with a shower trailer and a bunk trailer set up in the parking lot. Volunteers will be repairing homes that were gutted after the flood, with the possibility of a few new builds.
