Some 50 students from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will be spending their Martin Luther King Jr. holiday collecting food and money for the less fortunate.
The students will be working next Monday afternoon at Family Thrift Centers, Safeway, Don's Valley Market, Prairie Market and Walmart stores around the city.
Donations also will be collected around the School of Mines campus.
This year will mark the third year that Mines students will be involved in the MLK Jr. Day of Service.
In 2012, students collected 1,182 pounds of food and $700 in donations for Feeding South Dakota, a hunger relief organization working to end hunger in the state, and the SDSM&T Food Pantry.
