Volunteers from Mississippi finishing up good deeds

It has been a busy week for a group from Biloxi Mississippi. Ten volunteers were lending a hand in Wilmington this week. They say they were simply returning a favor. People from Wilmington traveled to Biloxi after Hurricane Katrina. Now, these Biloxi residents are wrapping up a five day trip to our area. They helped rebuild two homes -- one off Carolina Beach Road belongs to an elderly woman. They repainted, and weather-sealed her home. Volunteer Ray Marshall said, "You talk about things being indescribable, you just swell up with pride, and what I was noticing is what little effort it takes on my part to get such good work done for people." The volunteers say they had a great time in Wilmington. The group is heading back to Mississippi tomorrow.
