COLUMBIA, Miss. (AP) - Dozens of volunteers and the Columbia Strong organization this weekend helped landscape some homes that were rebuilt after last year’s deadly tornado.

WDAM-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1FBoqHV ) volunteers on Saturday planted grass, flower beds and did other work in several neighborhoods that were devastated by the twister that struck the town on Dec. 23, 2014.

The Columbia Strong organization rebuilt 23 homes for storm victims. The organization also coordinated debris removal from dozens of other homes.

One of the volunteers, Lacey Montgomery, and her daughter, Isley, participated alongside about 150 other volunteers. Montgomery says lending a hand, getting dirty and serving people in need is a great thing.

Martha Gardner, whose home was rebuilt by Columbia Strong, says she’s thankful for everybody and everything that was done to help her.
