The group joined forces with Youth Serve Birmingham and helped spruce up the historic Bethel Baptist Church, where the famed Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth served as pastor during the Civil Rights Movement.

"Students learned about our area's rich history.  They prepared care packages for senior citizens and backpacks for students in northside schools.  Additionally, they delivered care packages to police officers at the North Precinct," sponsor Teri Coleman said.  "What a great way to celebrate the life of such a great man by serving others."
