Governor urges Kentuckians to volunteer

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians are being urged to find volunteer opportunities this weekend to honor Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy.

Gov. Steve Beshear says whether it's a community effort or a smaller project, any volunteer work can make a difference. He says that participating in the National Day of Service on Saturday will honor King's life and works and will help build strong communities in Kentucky.

Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson says Kentuckians repeatedly show their desire to offer helping hands to others in need.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be observed on Monday. This year, the presidential inauguration coincides with the King holiday, and President Barack Obama is also urging Americans to volunteer.
