Hundreds of volunteers continue to pick up the pieces tonight after a tornado destroyed many areas in Clovis.  NewsChannel 10's Felicia Lafuente shares what they are doing to help rebuild the community.

"This is way worse.  This is the heart of it," says Chris Pacheco, a volunteer with the National Guard, of the hardest hit area of Clovis, NM.

Members of the National Guard, along with hundreds of Cannon Air Force Base airmen, the Salvation Army, the Red Cross, and dozens of volunteers of all ages have been working non-stop today to clean up the mess left from Friday's tornado.

"I wanted to help others.  I heard about the destruction," says Devyne Cook, a young volunteer.  "I thought a really bad thing happened."

Devyne, 11, is on spring break like many other volunteers right now, but he came along with his grandmother to help clean up.  He hopes others his age will volunteer to do the same. 

When asked why he thinks it's important for other young people to help out and see his example, Devyne replies: "It's an example of doing something right for each other."

All the volunteers NewsChannel 10 spoke with say they will continue working until all the mess is cleaned up.
