    The Samaritan's Purse is still in The Good Life City, and is still looking for volunteers following Hurricane Michael.

    Since October, Program Manager Shannon Daley says Samaritan's Purse has written over 1,800 work orders.

    Now, they only have about 430 open orders to complete.

    Once the work is done, Daley says Samaritan's Purse will leave the Good Life City and move to help other disaster areas.

    Clean up will still continue even after the Samaritan's Purse leaves and Daley is encouraging anyone who would like to volunteer to get involved.

    "There's plenty of people who still have trees that are down, that either haven't been able to ask for help or have just been afraid to ask for help, but we just want to see a community mobilize to help neighbor help neighbor," said Daley.

    If you're interested in volunteering, you can visit the Old Coke Plant at 925 Pine Avenue. Volunteer orientations are at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

    Daley says the remaining work orders should take about two weeks to complete.

    Until then, some organizations are thinking about doing a day of service in the near future.
