NORWALK - Volunteers in southwestern Connecticut spent the day fixing up dozens of houses and helping families in need.

More than two dozen volunteers teamed up with HomeFront, a program that helps low-income homeowners with home repairs, to fix up houses and yards in Norwalk.

Crews from the television show “This Old House” were also on hand making repairs to a great-grandmother’s home.

"This was one of my dreams to get help and I got it…It's amazing to see this," Sharon Walls told News 12.

Representatives from HomeFront say more than 2,500 volunteers worked on houses in Connecticut and New York today. Some of those houses had been damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
