When you bring in hundreds of tons of sand to downtown South Bend it's going to take a while to clean-up.
Crews have been working at the site of "On the River 2008" since Sunday to clear the area of its island theme.
The fundraiser brought in more than 20-thousand dollars for the Center for the Homeless thanks to donations and volunteers.
"Our volunteers from this event were just extraordinary. We had a crew out there at 9 a.m. Monday morning and it was the same crew who had worked the night before so it was a rough one, there was lot's of coffee," says Jacqueline Kronk, Center for the Homeless.
The South Bend Street Department will begin clearing the donated sand Tuesday once it dries out.
They will use it for excavation projects and to put on the roadways this winter.
