Salisbury Volunteers Clean-Up Storm Damage In Crisfield

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - As Crisfield continues to recover, volunteers from across the Eastern Shore are rolling up their sleeves for their neighbors.    

Whether it's picking up trash, removing furniture, or chipping away at the foundation, they're doing everything they can to show just how much they care.     

Gary Brown and his team of 150 volunteers are just one of many groups lending a helping hand. They've been working diligently for the past two weeks and after Sandy left dozens of homes under water and inhabitable, it's left them with one big problem.

"A lot of people here have abandoned their homes, there is nobody home so we can't get in," said Gary Brown.

But for the homes they can help, they're working from the bottom up by removing carpets and hardwood floors in an attempt to dry everything out and to prevent mold and mildew.  There's no doubt, the road to recovery will be a long one and volunteer Louis Rimbach said he'll be there every step of the way.

"It's a long term project, this restoration work will go on for years and ill be coming down as often as I can."
