Family who lost home in storms gives back to the community

ROCHELLE (WREX) -

A Rochelle family that lost it's home in the April 9th tornadoes is giving back to the community. 

Watsana Thiravong and her family are selling homemade spring rolls to raise money to buy shoes for children in need.  They're hoping to buy 150 shoes for kids before they head back to school.  They are growing their own produce to make the rolls. 

The Thiravong's neighbors, who also lost their home, are getting in on the action to help.  

The spring rolls will be sold tomorrow at the Cypress Market in Rochelle.  It begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. on 10th Avenue.
