LEWISTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It is finally moving day for some of the victims of the Lewiston fires, and volunteers are needed to help move furniture.

The YWCA of Central Maine is coordinating volunteer movers to help pick up furniture from the Lewiston Marden's and move it in to new apartments.

There will be two shifts each day, except for Sunday, beginning at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Volunteers will meet at the Emergency Management Agency office on Oak Street, next to the Lewiston Fire Department.

To sign up for a shift, email YWCA of Central Maine Director Kathy Durgin-Leighton at kleighton@ywcamaine.org or call 795-4050.

Catholic Charities is working with the YWCA to coordinate the moving efforts. With cash donations to organizations like the United Way, they have been able to purchase furniture in bulk at a discounted price from Marden's.
