SAND SPRINGS, Okla. — On Wednesday morning, a group of football players from Charles Page High School arrived at the Meadow Valley neighborhood off Highway 51 ready to work.

With their heavy-duty gloves, they spent the day removing heavy furniture and debris from homes that were damaged in the flooding.

They went door to door to talk to neighbors and aid in the clean up efforts.

"I was very impressed. The young men came in and looked like a bunch of ants. They just went to work and hauled everything to the dumpster for us," said Teresa Hunt, a resident who lost everything.

Her house of 15 years was damaged by the floods. She said the water got about two feet high and destroyed her furniture.

Seeing volunteers every day in her neighborhood is helping keeping morale high, she said.

Another group of football players from the high school went to the Sand Springs Community Services to deliver boxed up donations of basic necessities.
