Roanoke Valley Global Youth Service Day

Posted: Updated:

Global Youth Service Day is Saturday.  Hundreds of kids from across the area will participate in community service projects.

This is the 25th year for the event. It's put on by Family Service and is the largest volunteer initiative in the world. 

Some high school students volunteered today washing cars at Goodwill Industries.     

"If we can help the community we can't help ourselves it's all about unity. if we're not together we can't conquer other things it's a togetherness thing" said Alex Jones, a student at Forest Park Academy student.

Volunteers will be at the VA Medical Center, Habitat for Humanity and Mill Mountain Zoo. You can find out more information here
