Lynchburg, VA - First year students at Lynchburg College took part in a day of service Wednesday.
We caught up with some of the students Wednesday morning at the Lynchburg Daily Bread.
Some 530 students spanned the city volunteering at eight non-profit organizations Wednesday morning.
They went to seven more locations Wednesday afternoon.
Those participating say they enjoy the opportunity to give back to the community where they plan to spend the next four years of their college career.
"I think it's good to give back to the Greater Lynchburg community, you know it just give me something else to do off campus and I just feel better, since I'm not from here just giving back to a town that I'm not from," said Steele Clay, a Freshman at Lynchburg College.
This has become an annual event at Lynchburg College.
