Penn State Athletes Help on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

A group of Penn State athletes were among the many observing Martin Luther King Day with a day dedicated to community service.

Some of the athletes helped load dozens of food boxes and bags for the Centre County YMCA anti-hunger program.

The food will be distributed to families in need in the next few weeks, and the many of the athletes say their volunteer work was also educational.

“It is kind of sad and eye opening to see this many people still in need of food and still hungry.”

This was the first year that Penn State observed MLK Day as an official university holiday.
