Toyota workers volunteer time to help storm victims

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A group of executives exchanged their suits and briefcases for gloves and boots to help tornado victims on Lockhart Road in Madison County.

Kerry Baker said he'll be out helping neighbors affected by last month's storms even on Memorial Day weekend.

"I'm very familiar with this area. Just remembering it from when all the homes were here, in a blink of an eye, it's destroyed.  It seems like a dream.  It's still unreal right now," said Baker.

Baker works at the Toyota plant, where right now things are slow, so several employees decided to pull together and volunteer their time.

"It's an outreach and love we are showing to the people in a time of disaster. I'm thankful to be part of a company that cares about the community," he said.

Baker said he not only represents Toyota, but he represents a cause he believes in.
