"Day of Service" brings hundreds of volunteers to Avondale

A Birmingham neighborhood is getting a helping hand on its way back from the brink.

The Avondale area has undergone a revitalization over the last several years. Sunday, that process continued thanks to the efforts of two local churches.

For the second year in a row, Canterbury United Methodist Church in Mountain Brook partnered with Avondale UMC for a "Day of Service" in the community.

"I'm here to pack up bags of food so everyone can have something to eat," volunteer, Charlotte Gillum, said.

More than 350 volunteers participated in this year's "Day of Service."
