Spotted: Sacred Heart Prep students filling sand bags

by Linda Hubbard on January 11, 2023

Five Sacred Heart Prep students who are members of the school’s Red Cross Club visited the Grant Yard sandbag location in Redwood City to help residents put them together.

San Mateo Public Works gave them three empty pallets, protective gear and two-minute crash course in building sandbags. The students — Neal Chopra, Andrew Spencer, JJ Boesen, Blake Hetherington and Tyler Hogan, built over 100 bags and helped residents load them into cars until the rain came.

Still needing sandbags yourself? Here’s where to find them.

This is wonderful. My 82-year-old mother and blind brother were out there trying to make their own sandbags last week. No one offered to help them, even after they asked how they would do this – except two dear elderly ladies in their 70s. Bless their hearts. Thanks to these kind ladies and young students.
