"It's about neighbors helping neighbors. You put aside your differences," he continued. "It doesn't matter what color you are or what denomination or even what faith you are. People are just reaching out and helping others, that's what its all about."

The ministry is also accepting donations to help hurricane victims.

Volunteers can also sign up at eleven different locations around the city at the church's Web site
