LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Salvation Army's dining room got a much needed face-lift on Monday.
That's where a group of volunteers from Second Baptist Church spent this day of service.
They arrived early Monday morning and covered a "to-do" list, including maintenance work to the shelter's family rooms, painting and organizing the food pantry.
Pastor Preston Clegg said taking a day off work to serve others is a way to continue the legacy of Doctor King.
"These are people who care more about giving than receiving, they care very deeply about our community, they care about the vulnerable in our midst, so they're here serving as an act of peace, as an act of justice," said Clegg.
Pastor Clegg said they partner with the Salvation Army throughout the year, and adding MLK day to the list of volunteer events just made sense.
