UNDATED (KMOX) – It was a sea of orange volunteer shirts in Sunset Hills on Saturday.

Bricks were passed one at a time down a line of volunteers, as part of a cleanup effort following the torandoes that tore through the region on New Year’s Eve.

Meanwhile in north St. Louis, more than fifty volunteers gathered at a Salvation Army office on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to sip coffee and hot chocolate before leading their own storm-related debris cleanup effort in that area.

Major Janice Love with the Salvation Army helped organize the effort, “It doesn’t matter how breezy it is outside (temperatures were in the teens, with wind chills near zero), you have to smile because it’s cool. To see this is very cool.”
