Just call it The Do-Good Wife.
Julianna Margulies and the cast and crew of The Good Wife teamed up with St. Bernard Project – a non-profit organization that helps disaster victims repair the extreme damage to their homes – donated $77,185 to the charity and rolled up their sleeves to do some hands–on work.
"All of us on the east coast remember that terrible day and the aftermath of its devastation," said Margulies, 47, standing with costars Chris Noth and Josh Charles outside of Sandy victim Margaret McNulty's home in Rockaway Park, N.Y., on Saturday. "One year later communities are still suffering."
McNulty's home, with the entire basement and first floor destroyed by Sandy flood waters, was just one of 6 homes the cast helped fix up that afternoon.
