WASHINGTON- Thousands of Washington residents have nothing, after the storm leveled parts of their city.
But it's a community effort on the road to recovery.
As residents are left picking up the pieces after the storm, they're finding their personal belongings scattered around.
So volunteers are doing what they can to help those in need.
"A lot of things, including food and shelter," said Richard Staffeldt who is eating a hot meal, and seeking shelter at Crossroads Church.
Everything he owns, including his home is gone.
"Under the circumstances, it's the best thing that could happen. I never slept in the church before."
Volunteers are working 24/7 to make sure, Washington residents, like Staffeldt have the bare necessities.
"There's a lot of people in need here in Washington, there's a great number of people who lost everything,'' said Dave Stoner, a Red Cross Volunteer.
Which is why the community is sticking together by collecting supplies, clothing, and food.
"We're all coming together, and trying to help each other now," said Lori Kingery, a local volunteer.
"It's still our home and we want to take care of everybody," said Shawn Whitman, another local volunteer.
Neighbors helping neighbors to rebuild hope.
"It restores your faith in humanity," said Stoner.
"it's outstanding the generosity," said Staffeldt.
Volunteers pitching in, said they even took off work, or haven't slept in days, to help out anyway they can.
