From New Orleans, Louisiana to Buffalo, New York, a volunteer group from Mississippi has been in Western New York since Saturday to help clean up after last week's storm.

Reign of Hope is an off-shoot of Eight Days of Hope, which started after Hurricane Katrina.

Volunteers from the group helped cut down damaged trees at a home in Orchard Park before they could harm anyone on the ground. Members also shoveled driveways and roofs and bought groceries for those stranded by the storm.

The work was all done for free by the group with volunteers from Mississippi, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, who all paid for their own travel.
