Some 100 grade school and high school-aged youth, along with parents and adult chaperones, spent the morning hours of their Dr. Martin Luther King Day national holiday by doing works of service to help others in need.

PHOTO GALLERY -- Medford's MLK Day of Service

Gathered in the auditorium of St. Mary of the Lakes School, Medford, the majority of the young people worked in assembly line fashion preparing bags of food to be given to a number of outreach agencies in Mercer, Burlington and Camden Counties as well as in Philadelphia. Each bag, decorated with a smiley face made by the younger children, contained either a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a bologna and cheese sandwich, a piece of fruit, a bottle of water and a snack, such as a granola bar.
