ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A group of Albany volunteers cooked and served lunch to people in need Monday afternoon, as part of a day of service on Martin Luther King Day..
More than a dozen of Laila's Lil Community Angels cooked bar-b-que chicken and served lunch at the Albany Rescue Mission.
On a cold day, the men and women at the mission enjoyed a hot lunch and fellowship with people letting them know they care.
Laila Jackson is organizing the angels, planning to do more service projects to aid the community.
"Because I'm fortunate enough that I can. And the community can. We take so much for granted. We have people out here who are struggling every day. Just with basic life essentials. So we are able to give back, and that's what we are out here to do," said Lil Community Angels leader Laila Jackson.
Several of the volunteers helping today were members of the Daring Diva's kickball team.
