Mercer students help others on MLK Day

A group of students worked on a house on Birch Street near Central High School in Macon.

The house is owned by the Fuller Center for Housing and will eventually go to a family who needs it.

The students painted, moved windows, and cleaned the house.

Organizers say it was their way of honoring Dr. King's legacy.

"It would've been easy to roll over and go back to sleep and forget that we're supposed to be serving. It's a day on in memory of Dr. King and not a day off. And what better thing to do than come to work so that Fuller Center can enable a family to move from an apartment to being homeowners. What a gift," said June O'Neal, Fuller Center volunteer.

Once the house is complete, the family will purchase the house with no interest payments.
