(KMOV) -- It will be a big job. The damage done by the Good Friday tornadoes cut across the bi-state and communities are handling the clean-up in different ways.

Maryland Heights and Bridgeton are getting help from the volunteer group, Service International. Both skilled and unskilled volunteers can assist as long as they sign a release form and adhere to safety rules. So far, around 2,000 people have volunteered through Service International since Monday.

In Berkeley, the Public Works director said volunteers with the Salvation Army and AmeriCorps have committed to spending this Saturday, picking up debris. Berkeley expects around 200 volunteers and says that if all of the committed volunteers show-up, they won't need more help this weekend.

Volunteers who are looking for a project, can call 2-1-1. Missouri 211's website also lists projects, in need of volunteers here:
