Donalsonville-- Hundreds of people in Seminole County will be homeless for the holidays. The September floods left behind a major mess and a lot of work.
The First Church of the Nazarene in Donalsonville is looking for extra hands to pitch in. Fifty-eight-year-old John Cross opens a lot of stranger's doors.
"Volunteering is a lifestyle I've had for the last 25 years," said Cross. "Always been a new adventure- helping somebody that can't help themselves."
Now, he's giving Seminole County flood victims like 83-year-old Vaudine Johnson a new layer towards a normal life. "It's been hard, stuck together as a community I'll help you and you help me," says Vauldien.
Cross came from Quitman to help for a one day, but decided to camp out for a while. "I'm not specifically committed," said John. "I said I could stay up to six months."
First Church of the Nazarene Pastor Eric Boomer is giving him a place to stay and food to eat. They still have 105 homes on a list to be repaired. "Let them know we're coming as fast as we can," said Pastor Eric Boomer. "At this time, John and myself are the work teams, until others come."
Pastor Boomer hopes a flood of volunteers, like Cross, come to the rescue to get these victims home for the holidays. Pastor Boomer has volunteer teams to feed work teams who come from out of town. They also have a vacant house with cots for sleeping arrangements.
To sign up, e-mail Pastor Boomer, or visit the First Church of the Nazarene in Donalsonville.
