BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Hillside Intermediate School’s Roots & Shoots program participated in the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service to make the school a better place and help those in need.

The national Martin Luther King Day of Service is designed to transform Martin Luther King Jr. Day into a national day of community service for people of all ages to help their communities.

About 125 fifth and sixth graders, as well as some middle school students, represented Hillside during the school’s fourth annual Day of Service.

The students were divided into seven service groups, with many staying at Hillside to paint Buddy Benches, create recycled flowers for Middle Earth with the Washington Valley Garden Club, paint a mural on the glass windows in the school and work inside Hillside’s Habitats to clean bird boxes, clear trails and collect trash.

Other students were bused off-site to volunteer at Avalon Assisted Living, the Pregnancy Aid Center in Raritan, the Somerset County Regional Animal Shelter and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare in Madison.

A final group of students performed a variety show at Chelsea Assisted Living in Bridgewater.
