Members of the Hays High football team are lending a hand with cleanup efforts around the Hays community Wednesday.
Head coach Tony Crough said several members of the football team spread throughout the community early Wednesday morning to various locations in and around Hays.
“We realized the community is in need, and we thought we could surely help since we’re not in school today” Crough said.
Crough said he more than 50 members of the team were helping in the morning and anticipated more players would be helping out.
They have already received several messages from people around Hays looking for help.
“We’ve got four or five different crews of kids around town,” Crough said.
The kids were already helping Wednesday morning move furniture from flooded areas, helping to cleanup a shed that was destroyed by the wind and move bleachers that were blown over at Hays Middle School.
Damage at the middle school forced officials to push the start of the school year back a day in the USD 489 district.
If you need help cleaning up, you can reach out to the Hays High football team through their Twitter account, which can be found HERE.
Crough said people can also reach out to a Hays High staff member or football player.
