BRONX - Bronx students and residents spent the day painting and doing construction work in several community-improvement projects throughout the borough during a day of service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Around 1,000 volunteers spent the day working inside schools and other projects in an effort to improve their community. There were 97 projects throughout the borough.

At M.S. 424 in Hunts Point, it was a time to remember King and also a time to give back to their community, students said.

Organizers of the event noted there are several opportunities to continue volunteering throughout the year.
