Monday was a day of service across North Texas as Americans honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Some of the communities decided to host virtual events while some conducted events following social distancing.
TCU students answered a call to action on Monday, with dozens gathered at New Mount Rose Baptist Church in Fort Worth to serve the surrounding community.
One of the students Leslie Parra said, "Service regardless of the day is always very important and especially today of all days."
Rev. Kyev Tatum, New Mount Rose Baptist Church, said Monday was the day of service for people to come forward and help others after a year of isolation for some members of the community.
Volunteers cleaned the yards of some senior citizens and also handed out free clothing and groceries to folks in need.
The pandemic changed how Americans celebrated this Day.
