WHITESBORO- Volunteers from the area were out on Saturday helping flood victims in Whitesboro, clean up.

Members with the Mohawk Valley Church provided food and water to those who needed it. They also helped clean out several basements and removed trash from homes.

The volunteers went down some of the hardest hit streets in the village and did what they could to show the community, they're there to help.

"I've watched these people clean time and time again, and I don't know it just really hurt my heart and I wanted to help," said Christie Handzel.

Another volunteer said, it's important to come together as a community. "It shows that we care and are just really passionate about being a real solid community. I can recognize when there is a need, and I'm really glad that I was able clean out their basements," said Jessic Scmitt.

Over 20 volunteers took part in the clean up efforts.
