"We got up because a lot of students share that belief as well. The importance of serving our community," Nina Barbieri with UHD said." University of Houston-Downtown

    Houstonians honor Dr. King with day of service
    From sorting rice to packing boxes, volunteers were hard at work on Monday at the Houston Food Bank. "We have a lot of people here that are helping us get our food out and feed those hungry people in the community," Director of major guests for Houston Food Bank Paula McKenzie said.
