Valdosta - South Georgia business men and women took time from work to read with a child.

Workers from Georgia Power in Valdosta enjoyed a book with students at Lowmax-Pinevale Elementary School Tuesday morning. It's a service project the company takes part in every January to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.

Georgia Power also donated 100 dollars to the school to buy books about Dr. King.

"Reading is the gateway to learning and maybe in some small way we can help today and I really hope the employees will see how important it is and will continue to volunteer their time," said Marshall Conner.

Georgia Power workers also read with students at Clyattville Elementary and Len Lastinger Elementary School in Tifton.
