ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People in Albany celebrated the life of Martin Luther King Junior, Saturday.

The Boys and Girls Clubs and the East Towne Civic League held their annual "Make a Difference" service project in honor of Dr. King. The American Cancer Society also participated. Volunteers passed out about 250 bags of food to the community.

"It's basically a celebration of what he's done. To celebrate and be excited and ecstatic about what he's done for us. But also keep it moving and not sleep for what he did. So we should do this on his day, we should do this year round," said A'Jay Jones.

Mayor Hubbard and newly elected ward two city commissioner Bobby Coleman also attended.
