Candice Ward / For Metro Calgary CALGARY, AB Andrea Smith, 17, and Julia Slabe, 17, help remove damaged exercise equipment in the flood ravaged community of Roxboro on Tuesday. Community members and volunteers of all kinds, have come together to help out their neighbours through this difficult time.

For those looking to help out in flood-effected Calgary communities, there are several options for long-weekend volunteering, and Mayor Naheed Nenshi is encouraging people to simply put on a pair of boots and get out there.

“What better way to celebrate the long weekend than volunteer,” Nenshi said Friday.
