MLK day means day of service for Thomas Co. students

THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -

Students in Thomas County honored Dr. King on Monday by helping to beautify their community.

Instead of just spending their day out of class at home relaxing, students worked at several project sites through Hands On Thomas County.

They learned about composting and helped with planting and trimming, all things that will help keep Thomas County beautiful.

"We have project sites and volunteers out at Second Harvest of South Georgia, we have students working with Habitat For Humanity, and we also have a group out in Meigs, The Virtuous Girl's group, a literacy program and of course we have a group here, the Thomasville High School Air Force Junior ROTC," said Hands on Thomas County, Executive Director, Angela Kimanis.

Hands on Thomas County is also gearing up for their annual Mardi Gras event that will be held at Pebble Hill Plantation on Saturday.
