California students volunteer in North Cedar

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- While Eastern Iowa continues to recover from the floods of 2008 volunteers continue to show their generosity.

"It was really scary watching it, knowing the people were in a lot of danger and devastation," said former Cedar Falls resident Mary Hach.

Hach, and her 11 students have been raising money since last September for the chance to come to Iowa and help the flood victims of Cedar Falls.

The Christian group CLC had the chance to go to Spain but chose to come help North Cedar instead.   The group met weekly planing the trip and raising the funds.

"Coming and picking up everything, meeting the different people of the houses, it's been a really great experience, and I'm really fortunate I get to do this," said volunteer Molly McNulty.

The students will work on the homes in North Cedar through Saturday before enjoying some of the local attractions.
