Oneida (WSYR-TV) - On Saturday, Sally Hall sat outside her home in Oneida surrounded by the few items she could salvage after her belongings were destroyed by flooding.
The interior of her home was being taken apart board by board, as she mourned the loss of her home and everything inside.
She said that she has hope in these dark times and that can be attributed to nearly 80 volunteers from the Abundant Life Christian Center, based in East Syracuse.
They were most recently helping in Oklahoma City, following the deadly tornadoes. The torrential rain and flooding made their work necessary one county over.
Mark Haywood, the outreach manager for the center, said, "Many organizations help in a lot of different ways, but not a lot help the homeowners go in and help clean up, help them start somewhere."
Haywood's team spent several hours gutting the interior of the Hall's home, leaving only a skeleton of the structure.
The Hall family lived in the home for nearly 30 years, and was only four months away from finishing their mortgage payments.
Now, they have to start over.
