Young Bronx residents feed needy to honor MLK Jr.
A youth group in The Bronx today honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by helping its church feed the needy.
"Sacrifice would be giving up something that you have so that other people could feel good," said Jason Adjei, a member of the group.
Yves Filius, the youth director at St. Augustine Church, said values such as sacrificing for others are what the church hopes to instill in its kids.
"A lot of kids now are interested in video games, doing recreational stuff for their own self-interest," Filius said.
The youth group members were expected to serve meals to more than 250 local residents.
