Hundreds of people took part in community service projects in Baton Rouge honoring the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

City Year Louisiana and the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center on Gus Young Avenue partnered for what they called a "day ON, not a day off."

Volunteers helped revitalize the community center and surrounding area by painting houses and sprucing up an empty lot to serve as a recreational area for senior citizens. They also completed several other projects.
