Wave of volunteers coming

Thousands of volunteers are set to swarm into Cedar Rapids this spring and early summer to help rebuild flooded homes.

More than 1,500 have already signed up for March, according to the Linn Area Long Term Recovery Coalition and the United Methodist Church. Another 500 are coming in April, nearly 1,000 in May and 1,500 in June and 1,000 in July.

And the numbers increase daily.

The volunteers will help rebuild flooded homes, working on projects according to their skills.
