ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Martin Luther King Holiday will be observed Monday, and many South Georgians will spend the day serving the community.

The Albany Police Department AmeriCorps Cadets have planned a daylong community cleanup project.

After a ceremony honoring Dr. King, volunteers will march and clean up litter in the CME area, William Binns, and Dennis Homes areas.

"Yes sir, there is a lot of trash," said AmeriCorps Cadet Stephanie Dennard. "And we just want to show the people in the community that we do care and we want them to get involved also."

Volunteers for the Community Clean up will meet at the Albany Police Center at 530 West Broad Avenue at 9 Monday morning.

The Flint River Habitat for Humanity will again sponsor its Building on the Dream volunteer program starting Monday. Habitat needs volunteers to help build homes for people in need in the 900 block of Willow Oak Court.
