Americus--  An organization currently helping people rebuild in Louisiana and overseas will soon help with recovery efforts in their own backyard.

The Americus-based Fuller Center For Housing is accepting donations to its disaster relief fund.

The money will pay for building materials and cover other expenses as the group repairs and rebuilds homes.

"Immediately after the storm on Friday, I walked around in the community over there where the two people perished. I was there at that home, was with the lady next door and walked all through that whole area and saw the utter devastation and those people need some helping hands," said Fuller Center For Housing Founder Millard Fuller.

Millard Fuller says people from the center will survey neighborhoods in the next couple of weeks to assess where help is needed most.  To help with the disaster relief fund, visit www.fullercenter.org.
