Tools needed to help Sandy victims

LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

South Mississippi continues to help Hurricane Sandy victims. Thomas Barnes plans to leave Gulfport Monday morning with a bag of tools.

He says he is on a mission to help people strip their homes and start rebuilding in New Jersey.

Barnes said, "I'm just one man, one set of tools and to do a little cleanup. These people have never witnessed a storm like this, they don't know how to strip their house get it dried out and back to work. My main concern is to let these people know its not the end of the world, it's not devastation, you can rebuild. I've been through this, we've been through this. But what we need more than anything are tools."

You can help Sandy victims by donating tools. Barnes will be at the Long Beach Harbor bait shop on Sunday from 2p.m.-4p.m. accepting any tools or monetary donations.

WLOX's Jessica Bowman will be there and have the story Sunday night on WLOX News.
