The volunteers cleaned the streets in the center of the town, the Town’s Cultural Centre and private houses in the local community of Crkvina.

Aside from offering help in cleaning, the volunteers provided the residents of the flood- affected areas with humanitarian packages. The employees of the Faculty of Forestry collected 30 packages containing stuff for personal hygiene to their students whose houses and flats were flooded in this Municipality, but also to other residents from this area.
