Men and women from four state prisons were among them, helping with sandbagging efforts in Clarksville, Norborne, New Franklin and Kimmswick.
“It was an amazing, very humbling experience,” said Jean Solis, a resident of the Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center (WERDCC) in Vandalia, who helped with the sandbagging in Clarksville.
