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."

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.' "
