Obama urges public service at DC school makeover

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

President Barack Obama wants Americans to take time out and volunteer for community service projects to give back to others.

Obama is highlighting a National Day of Service and the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on Saturday, the beginning of a whirlwind weekend of inaugural events marking the end of his first term and start of his second.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama stained a bookshelf at Burrville Elementary School in D.C. They were joined by about 500 volunteers for the school makeover project.

Obama praised the volunteers, from adults to children, for understanding the importance of giving back.
