Longwood University’s 2015 MLK Service Challenge joined others across the nation and saw students volunteering their time and talent across the community on Monday, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The Farmville Area Habitat for Humanity was among the beneficiaries of the day’s intent to celebrate Dr. King’s memory and mission by engaging in community service.
