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.

Carrie Preston, who won at Sunday's Creative Arts Emmy Awards for her role on The Good Wife, didn't even know she was nominated until her best friend texted her.
"[She] sends me a photo of herself weeping, so I thought, 'Let me give her a call and see what this is about,' " Preston, 46, told PEOPLE in a video interview. "She was like, 'You got nominated!' "
By the time the True Blood star's publicist called to confirm the good news, the excitement had begun to kick in.
"I was saying, 'Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God' in the streets of New York, which probably made me just look like any other crazy person walking around the city."

If anyone's been following the sex scandals of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, it's Julianna Margulies.
The Emmy-winning actress's CBS show The Good Wife "ripped its title from the headlines when Silda Spitzer was standing right behind her husband" during the prostitution scandal, Margulies told PEOPLE on Tuesday.
With her character "loosely based" on Silda and other political wives who have stood by their husbands, Margulies says, "The headlines are now imitating us because both of these politicians – Spitzer and Weiner – have gotten back into the game of politics. And now newspapers are saying, 'Huma, take some advice from Alicia Florrick. Go back to work, don't read the papers.' "

Julianna Margulies waited 41 years to become a real-life good wife – and she’s savoring every minute of it.
"I feel very grateful that I had the courage to say no when I did and say yes when I could, that I waited to find the right mate and to have this little family," Margulies, now 46, tells Good Housekeeping in its May cover story. "There's something about this time in my life where I feel like it's never going to get better."
Margulies, who plays attorney Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife, married real-life lawyer Keith Lieberthal in 2007 while pregnant with their son Kieran, who was born two months later.
