It's been more than a month since an E-F-5 tornado shredded the town of Moore, Oklahoma.  24 people were killed and more than 90,000 tons of debris still need to be removed.

15 volunteers from High Point are doing just that.  They're getting their hands dirty cleaning up the damage.

The Northern Piedmont U-M-C District Disaster Response Team has members of all ages.  Volunteers range from 15 to 79 years old.  Today, they worked across the street from where the local elementary school used to be.

The team headed west with more than just muscles and man hours.  They also brought over $7,000 worth of Wal-Mart gift cards, 75 buckets donated by local residents and churches, along with 300 tee shirts, stuffed animals and book bags donated by Victory Junction.

The team heads back to the Triad Sunday, but team leader Keith Eddins plans to return with another group this fall.
