Hundreds of volunteers in Central Oregon are honoring Dr. King today by giving back to their local communities. Tia Sherry, with "Volunteer Connect" says last year about 350 people in Central Oregon came out to do service projects. It’s a national movement that is also popular in Central Oregon. There are 28 volunteer projects planned for this morning. KBND: “How about some examples of local projects you'll be working on?” Tia: “We have right now, 28 projects and we're really excited, because they are spread out over seven communities: from Sunriver, to Culver, Prineville, Redmond, Bend, La Pine and Sisters.” In Bend they are working on a Habitat for Humanity home. In Culver, Girl Scouts are making placemats and cards for seniors. And in La Pine, volunteers are painting the Community Kitchen.
