Corpus Christi, Texas – On select Saturdays in August and September, the City's new sandbag distribution system will be available for the public in each of the five districts. The next location will be Saturday, August 18, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Del Mar College – West Campus, 4100 Santa Elena Street off Airport Road

The automated sand filling machine is a free service for residents and makes filling sandbags quick and easy.
