Students Give Back on MLK Day

On Monday Oregon State University – Cascades students used their day off to give back to the community during their third annual Martine Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

Dozens of OSU-Cascades students spent their holiday volunteering for various non-profit organizations in Bend. Throughout the day student volunteers showed up to help at places like Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center and the The Environmental Center.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan caught up with the volunteers at two other locations Monday morning.
