#TeamAndrew Day 4: Volunteers have no intention of slowing down

Posted: Updated:
APISON, TN (WRCB) -

Volunteers with Steps 2 Hope have worked around the clock to finish the house for Andrew and Tori Smith.

The Fully handicap accessible house for the Smiths will be completely finished in about another week all thanks to thousands of helping hands working long hours.

"This eight hours, this ain't nothing, I got this," volunteer, Sean Curti says.

Steps 2 Hope is relying on volunteers like Candy Redd to get the job done.

"My first day was Friday morning at 7 a.m. and I've been here, this is my third day," says Redd.

Between the food tent and the build Redd says she's put in about 10 hours a day and doesn't have any plans of slowing down.

"I just feel like it's important for us to appreciate our service men and I think it's important to be able to give back to the community," Redd says.

While these volunteers give their time for Andrew and Tori Redd, they say they're also the ones benefiting from the project.

"This will change Andrew and Tori's life but this is changing our lives," says Redd.

Tori and Andrew plan on stopping by the site Sunday around 6 p.m. to tell their story to local youth groups who are volunteering their time.
