MLK Day of Service brings volunteers to Marvin Center

GW hosted Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service on Monday. Several hundred volunteers signed up to partake in mobile workshops that included putting hygiene kits together for women and crafting gifts for children in local hospitals.

We visited the workshops to get a glimpse of the volunteers and their projects:
