When Janice Moore's basement flooded during heavy rain, she didn't know what to do.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — An East Knoxville woman has a newly clean and dry basement thanks to the help of others.

"You can't hardly find someone who is gonna take the time. It's a blessing, it has to be, because I didn't know which way to go," said Moore.

"We treat customers like family so if someone has a problem and I know everyone in that area, then I'll call and check on our customers," said Jesse Cornett with Hometown Restoration Group.

Lowe's donated a new sump pump and some supplies to fix up the basement.
