ECU Students Volunteer In Honor Of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Some East Carolina University students used the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as a platform to help their community.

The King Holiday and Service Act was signed into law by President Clinton in 1994.

Since then, Americans have used their day off to help out in their community. On Monday in Greenville there was no exception.

More than 100 ECU students rolled up their sleeves to volunteer at eight different sites across Greenville.

At the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, organizations sorted apples. We're told the rotten ones will be given to farm pigs, while the fresh apples will be enjoyed by families.

At the Third Street Community Center, dozens of students raked leaves to make a compost pile for a future community garden. Students also volunteered at the Jarvis Boys and Girl's Club, as well as My Sister's Closet.
