GREENSBORO, N.C. — The legacy of service that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated so strongly for was witnessed all over the Piedmont today.

At Four Seasons Town Centre, more than 700 students volunteered their time on their day off from school, working on various service projects.

“This giant piece of art being put together to hang in downtown Greensboro, it’s being created by people of all different ethnicities. It shows that there is a brotherhood when there is one common goal,” said volunteer DeHan Jefferson.

Students also created “Linus” blankets and “worry jars” to give comfort to children who are going through hard times.

This is the eighth year for the event, organized by The Volunteer Center of Greensboro.
