LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Too often we report the negative news, but great things are happening in your community each day.
Here's a look at a few stories that are on The Brighter Side...
The Watershed is hosting their National Day of Service this Saturday, January 19.
The non-profit group has played an important part in helping people pay their bills, find housing and jobs and even providing toys for kids every Christmas.
In advance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is observed Monday, January 21, Watershed is looking for volunteers to help paint, rake and hand out coats and food to those in need.
"It's a national day of service and people helping people," says Reverand Hezekiah Stewart. "It's an awesome way to get to know your neighbor better and work one for another."
Rev. Stewart says those wanting to help are encourage to come out to 3701 Springer Blvd in Little Rock from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, you can call 501-378-0176.
And in a story that will have you singing (and reading), North Little Rock High School is promoting literacy in a big way.
The school was recently awarded a federal grant to purchase Nook electronic readers for more than one-thousand juniors and seniors.
To kick-off the Nook project, students and faculty produced a parody film called 'I Like Big Books'. The video has had more than 7,000 hits on YouTube.
