HENRYVILLE, IN (WAVE) – A city struck by tornadoes is getting special attention from volunteers.

On March 2, several homes were torn apart by tornadoes in Henryville, but Friday volunteers came together to build new homes.

The homes are being constructed in celebration of Sun for Thorntons Humanitarian Day which will be held on Sunday.

The group gathered at Catholic Charities to build the frames of the homes that will be delivered to Henryville over the weekend.

Along with some new homes, new life was planted at Henryville Junior-Senior High School.

Students teamed up with Ecotech to plant replacement trees on the school grounds.
