Volunteers gather for MLK Day of Service

Lawton- While many people will have Monday off for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, thousands won't spend their time sitting around. They'll donate their time to various community service projects.

It's happening across the country and in Lawton. This is the sixth year Cameron University students, faculty and staff will participate in the Doctor King Day of Service. They'll do everything from cleaning at the food bank to painting a classroom at Eisenhower Middle School.

Cameron has also teamed up with the United Way for a supply drive for its agencies. You can drop off items at any Lawton Country Mart, Wal-Mart or Sam's Club Monday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

We'll have complete coverage of the MLK Day of Service tonight on 7NEWS.
