Sharon Maines Interviews Katie Couric About Humanity Plaza

Right now hundreds of volunteers are in New York, working to build homes for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The building blitz is taking place right outside the Today Show studios. NewsChannel 11's Sharon Maines talked with Katie Couric about the habitat project.

"Sometimes you give money and you never quite know where it goes to, but in this case you really see what you've done, and it's a great sense of accomplishment," Couric said.

She also told Sharon she was impressed with the way Texans supported Hurricane Katrina victims by taking them in, and providing them with shelter.

"Obviously, people in Texas have big hearts," Couric said.

You can follow the progress of the Habitat For Humanity project at Humanity Plaza on the Today Show, every morning on NewsChannel 11.
