Cast And Crew Of 'The Good Wife' Take Time To Help Sandy Victims

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) -- Celebrities rolled up their sleeves and celebrated the 100th episode of "The Good Wife" in a non-traditional way by helping families in the Rockaways, on Saturday.

Margaret McNulty was ecstatic when she found out that the cast and crew of the show, along with a special grant from the St. Bernard Project, would be rebuilding her childhood home, CBS 2's Andrea Grymes reported.

"I just basically started jumping up and down and kissing them. I just couldn't believe it," she said, "Not just getting rebuilt, but by the cast and crew of The Good Wife. it's just the icing on the cake."

To celebrate the upcoming hundredth episode of the CBS smash hit The Good Wife, Julianna Margulies, co-stars Chris Noth and Josh Charles, and the entire cast and crew got together to help rebuild six homes in the Rockaways. All of the stars worked on Margaret's home.

"I really do believe that it's a pay it forward. If you take care of your community they'll take care of the next community, and hopefully it passes around the world," Margulies said.

Actor Matt Czuchry added that the project was also about spreading awareness.

"We're here to shed a light on the fact that a year later people are still suffering from Hurricane Sandy and that's far more important than any number," he said.

For the cast and crew rebuilding the homes was a touching experience.

"The industry that we're in is such a crazy business and then when you have things like this it just puts everything into perspective," Archie Panjabi said.

Margaret already has plans for when her home is finished.

"I'm going to invite everyone I know and have some music and some drinks and just celebrate being home," she said.

Cast members said that the hundredth episode is one of the best hours of television. Every character will have their moment when the show airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. on CBS.
