WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) students used their day off for a day of hard work.

Monday marked Martin Luther King, Jr. Day — a day when community service is often promoted.

“It’s an opportunity for them to give back to the community and to recognize the work Martin Luther King, Jr. did,” said. Construction Manager Michael Ondrey.

Ondrey said the home should be finished by February.
