Over a hundred ECU students took on the Martin Luther King Jr. Challenge Monday morning.
That challenge was to make a difference and volunteer their time.
Many students volunteered at the give to the troops in Greenville. There they helped to pack boxes that will be given to troops before they deploy overseas.
Organizers there say that it's especially important this week, because many troops are headed to Haiti to help with relief efforts.
And since they're leaving quickly these care packages help to make sure they have everything they need.
Students participated in other projects such as painting at the Boys and Girls Club, working with animals at the Humane Society, and assisting at the retirement community Spring Arbor.
