PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) - This week's storms were a call-to-duty for a special group of volunteers.
The group, Eight Days of Hope, is working right now to assist homeowners with clean-up efforts across the area.
"We've been out here all day today, here since morning," Israel Riley said. "We tarped a couple of roofs and we've been out here just helping this sweet lady."
Another volunteer shared her sentiment.
"I feel like I can't just not come out here," Sal Keith of Starkville said. "Like they said, we're so blessed to be able to give back."
"Right now we're just helping this lady clear up her yard and we're sharing the love of Jesus," volunteer Matthew Watt said.
The volunteers helped Regina Sykes who lives on Kings Highway in Pontotoc County.
"I don't have words. I don't have words," she said. "The serving attitudes of them and the spirit that they presented to us, it's been awesome."
"Everybody needs to know that we're here just to serve God," volunteer Barry Edwards said. "This is all for the glory of God, and it costs nobody nothing when we show up and we leave — it's free and clear."
