Volunteers help St. John Parish residents rebuild from Isaac

ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH (WAFB) - A massive rebuilding project is underway this week in St. John Parish, with more than 2,000 volunteers fanning out to help victims of Hurricane Isaac.

"These people are still living this way and it breaks my heart that it is this way, and that's why I'm so thankful that I'm able to give some of my time and my family is willing to sacrifice me for a few days to come down and help rebuild their lives a little bit," said volunteer Jeff Osborn.

Eight Days of Hope organizers said more than 11,000 volunteers have worked to repair close to 1,200 homes across multiple states since 2005.
