KOKOMO, Ind. -- The effort to help those affected by the tornado continues, as organizers from the United Way of Howard County are calling it “Volunteer Saturday 2.0."

Those organizers say thousands of people signed-up to meet for a training session Saturday morning so they could lend a helping hand throughout the afternoon.  The volunteers brought rakes and shovels and helped to separate debris, trash and tree limbs.

"I think this is a good reminder to help each other, even when there’s not a disaster," said volunteer Kevin Sprinkle.

"You realize someday you might need the help," Sprinkle said.

On Tuesday, Kokomo Street Commissioner Joe Ewing plans to work with crews from other cities to continue the clean-up process.
