Hundreds of people in Central Oregon won't take the day off on Monday; they'll honor the MLK Holiday with service back to the local community. Organizer for the local "Day of Service," Tia Sherry says they'll be tackling service projects in Bend, Culver, Sunriver, La Pine, Prineville, Redmond and Sisters, so far quite a few people have already committed to the volunteer work. Sherry: "And we currently have almost 300 volunteers sign up to give part of their day on Monday the 16th.” KBND: “Does that exceed what you did last year?” Sherry: “We had 350 and as we speak right now, we have almost 300, and we are getting on the phone talking on street corners, urging people to come out. And we believe we will exceed what we did last year." Local volunteers will be working on 28 service projects. The Day of Service is a national event that usually brings out hundred's of thousands of Americans who give back to their local communities and also reflect on Dr. King's life.
