BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called Jan. 21 a Day of Service for some who don't have to work.

From raking leaves to clearing debris - people were out pitching in to help others.

Students at the University of South Carolina got up early Monday morning to do their part.

"It's something that's going to be with me for a long time, something that's probably going to impact my life, most people my age aren't out volunteering so it's something that can help build my career, build me as an individual," said McKenlee Randolph.

Even the first family did their part for the "day of service."

Since the Martin Luther King Jr. observance  day fell during the presidential inauguration -  President Obama and the First Lady pitched in Saturday in the National Day of Service - staining bookshelves at a school in Washington D.C.
