LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Eighteen people from Wayside Christian Mission are heading to Houston to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The crew will help pull out damaged floors and walls in low-income areas. In a few days, a trailer full of donated items will follow.

"These men are all part of our recovery program here. Part of our recovery is giving back," said Nina Moseley, Chief Operating Officer at Wayside Christian Mission. "So they are very eager and anxious to go. They are very excited about going, these are some great workers so I believe they will do some great work while they are down there for people who do need some help."

The trip is being funded by an anonymous donor. The group will be in Texas for at least a week.
