BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

In honor of the 9/11 anniversary, volunteers from all over the country came out to help first responders gut and clean their homes.

Americorps workers met up at Glen Oaks High School before being sent off to work. One group came all the way from the State of Washington.

"I think it's just important to remember that those are the people that really sacrificed a lot and ran into danger, when everyone else was running out on those days, and if we can help them in any way we can help them, we're happy to do that," said Alexander Cordero, a Washington Conservation Corps member.

Other groups came to help from as far away as Colorado, California, and Maryland.
