Volunteers from around the country are continuing to help Kinston recover from Hurricane Florence.

Volunteers from the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Thomas, Kentucky are spending the week in Lenoir County performing much needed repairs to storm damaged homes.

The group is replacing flooded out flooring, repairing leaky roofs, and sealing up windows.

The visit is part of a continuous effort by the "KARE", or Kinston Area Recovery Efforts organization, to bring skilled help to residents in need.

Volunteers like Angie Briley say it's a great feeling to be able to help out. She says, "I think we get more out of helping these folks than they actually get. We're doubly blessed to be able to come down and help them."

Groups from Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and New Jersey also plan to volunteer in Lenoir County this summer.
