KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Thousands remain without power in Kansas City and some are cleaning up damage. 

In one Kansas City, KS neighborhood, neighbors are bonding together to help each other out. 

Just about every person in the Stony Point Neighborhood in KCK is picking up their tools and going to work. 

That includes Jimmie Templeton, who had his house damaged by a tree. 

"A tree falling over here, over here , over here, a tree in the back," Templeton said. 

Templeton lives alone, but his neighbors pitched in to help in the effort to clean his yard.

"It's just the right thing to do," said Ruben Aleman. "If you see someone in need, you give them a hand." 

Even without power, Templeton said he can rest easy because of the help. 

"We got all this off the roof, got the tarp up. It just shows you that people in this world still care about each other," he said. 

Denise Smith-Hisler is assisting cleaning up the yard of her elderly neighbor. Jeaniea Green is cheering on utility workers while her grandchildren help her pull the limbs off her dented 1956 Chevy. 

BPU crews say it could take another day or two to restore power to all of the homes. The American Red Cross has been bringing water and ice through the area.
