National Day of Service
READING, Pa. -

People in Berks County were participating in the National Day of Service.

We found a group of volunteers who were picking up trash from the streets of Reading.

The local clean-up was organized by the non-profit Reading Beautification group.

Volunteers say it was a great way to give back.

"I think it's important for us to help to do something to serve our community and this is just one simple little thing that we can do and meet some new friends and have a good time," said volunteer Marcia Stoner of Morgantown.

There were more than 250 volunteers who helped out in various jobs in Reading Saturday morning.
