Martin Luther King Day of Service events to be held Monday
For some, Dr. Martin Luther King Junior Day will be a day of service rather than a day off.
Brittany Ledbetter with AmeriCorps says they're hoping to foster volunteerism that will help the community long-term.
"So you learn that when you do community service in your youth you kind of sustain that for life," Ledbetter said," So we're trying to build that commitment and maybe people didn't get it when they were younger, so we want to give opportunities for young professionals, older people, we're really trying to get everyone involved."
Those interested in helping can call AmeriCorps at 314-622-4093.
