On Friday, more than 150 volunteers from The Home Depot and Team Rubicon teamed up to assist homeowners effected by Harvey.
They divided in to teams of at least 20 volunteers and fanned out across the Houston-area.
One of the locations was in La Marque at the home of Dorris Dillion.
Dillion has lived at her home on Elmo Street for eight years and she said at 70 years old there’s no way she could have gutted her home by herself.
The volunteers at Dillon’s house conducted a “muck and gut” operation removing furniture and debris from the home before ripping out the sheet rock and essentially gutting the property.
Team Rubicon is a nonprofit organization that allows military veterans the chance to continue their service in the form of disaster relief.
For Harvey, volunteers have worked in seven day shifts. Just enough time to train and work on a few homes before the next batch of America’s heroes to relieve them.
