Transcript for Meet the Good Samaritans helping their neighbors in the aftermath of Harvey
First we want to go back to Michael with more on the everyday heroes who are stepping up to help each other after hurricane Harvey. Hi, Michael. Hey, Lara, you know what, they are stepping up. I'm here outside the city of Houston at a fairgrounds they turned into an animal shelter that's being run by hundreds of volunteers but so many people in this community, they are stepping up, they are helping out and had a chance yesterday to go to the Windsor village united methodist church and watched ordinary people do extraordinary things. Check it out. A tale of neighbors helping neighbors. And that's some struggle to survive in the wake of hurricane Harvey's destruction, others jumping in to take care of one another. This place has been nothing but a blessing for me and my kids. Reporter: I went to Windsor village united methodist church - in Houston where I spoke with the pastor who counseled three presidents and is now focusing his energy on Harvey recovery. So how many people do you have here now. I think we're down to 21 now? Overall how many people have been able to come here and receive some type of help. Over 2,000 persons and counting. We are a distribution center. You said it, not a warehouse. We receive it to get it to the hearts and hands and folk who need it. Reporter: The house of worship turning into a house of help. All this is private. This is just the community. These are just people coming together who love their fellow citizens. Man, it was just humanity at its best in spite of all the desperation and the destruction that has occurred around us, the light of hope has been, is and will continue to be the carrying community of Houston, Texas. Reporter: Volunteers stepping up working day in and day out. You're spending 16, 18-hour days. 24. 24-hour days. You don't have to be a member of the church to come here. Just have to be somebody in need. We are a village and a village doesn't consist of who can a member but who witnesses to give and have the same love for what you have a love for. Reporter: Even people displaced lending their time. They open their doors for us. And for me I can give back. Reporter: We bumped into Eric Preston as he was donating 110 cases of water. I made it through the flood. You know, I was fine so I wanted to help out. Reporter: Amanda Bennett and Nadia Eubanks both staying at the church finding new friendships in the face of hardship. We lost everything. Everything. But you know what, at the end of the day you have your kid, your husband. I have my kid and my husband. And you got yourself. We're going to make it. You're going to make it. It's going to be okay. And then walking down the street and I get a tap on my shoulder and it'll be you saying, Michael, it's Amanda, I made it. A little help going a long way. Just being here in the presence of everybody that's volunteering and the staff here, that's a blessing in itself and they're doing a lot to help us to try to ensure that when the doors are closed that we're not out on the streets. And I got to say, guys, as you can see there's so much love, so much humanity here and I have to point out that again Windsor united methodist are going strictly off donations, support from the community. You don't have to be a member for them to help out. They're helping out anybody who is in need. It is an incredible place to visit and incredible place to see. Yeah, incredible acts of kindness. I understand you have some very special plans today. Yeah, I get a chance to go over and talk to J.J. Watt. Everybody knows j.j.'s raised $20 million or more to help out the city of Houston doing a lot to give back to the community in which he lives so I'll talk to him and get on a plane and come back to New York and I'm going to be in the studio with you tomorrow to bring that story, as well. We're looking forward to that. Please give J.J. All our best. Doing such a great job down
