Help Needed Rebuilding Ruidoso

There is a new call to rebuild, after flood waters ravaged Ruidoso, New Mexico. In late July, heavy rains caused massive flooding, drowning some homes in mud, while others were swept down river.

The Department of Agriculture is still stabilizing the river banks, and now the New Mexico Conference of the United Methodist Church is organizing volunteers to help rebuild the community. 

"We really need volunteers to call as soon as possible, so that I can coordinate them with a time that they can come and coordinate them with a victim that needs help," coordinator Shirley Foster said. 

The organization needs all types of volunteers. Work will begin in the next three to four weeks. Crews will install new insulation, dry-wall, paint and more. If you would like to volunteer, you can call Foster at (575) 973-4669, or leave a message at the church. That number is (575)257-4170.
