Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is calling on West Virginians to serve in their communities.
On Monday, members of the Huntington Convention and Visitors Bureau answered that call, rolling up their sleeves and helping out at the Huntington Area Food Bank. Volunteers packed boxes of food to be delivered to families in need across the Tri-State.
"We think that it's important to give back to our community,” Cara Hendrick of the Visitors Bureau said. “The city of Huntington, we're involved with several organizations. We have so many partners and we wanted to volunteer with them as well."
National Day to Serve is going on across the country and ends this Sunday.
