It may take years before southern Indiana completely recovers from the deadly tornadoes, and a group of students spent their weekend doing whatever they could to help.

Students of The Crossing in Elkhart made a trip down to Marysville to help out by cutting down trees and cleaning up debris.

The students say it was an eye-opening experience.

They say words can’t describe the images they saw and were greatly humbled.

“It makes you look and see the things you take for granted like having your house still standing and having you belongings with you. On the other end of that it lets you know who the important people are,” says student, Coree Crisler.

The Crossing is a school for students who haven’t excelled in traditional classrooms.

The school has also sent teams to help out after Hurricane Katrina and the Nappanee tornado.
