United Way of Miami-Dade honored Martin Luther King Jr. through volunteerism with a day of service on Saturday, Jan. 19.
More than 130 volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty for a beautification project at Camp Mahachee, an 11-acre campsite where the Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida build leadership skills, and learn about teamwork and the outdoors. Camp Mahachee is located at 9950 Old Cutler Rd.
The Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida is a United Way-funded agency.
Volunteers painted four cabins used for overnight camping, treat and repainted 40-plus metal awnings, laid mulch around the cabins and cleared invasive plant species surrounding the area.
The volunteer project was sponsored by Assurant, with support from Bank of America and the Jose Milton Foundation.
