Volunteers took their day off and spent their time in service of others in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday by piecing together thick, fuzzy blankets for Connecticut’s homeless.

UConn Community Outreach coordinated a day of service on the national holiday for students, inviting faculty and alumni to donate warm, handmade blankets to people without heat or shelter this winter.
