More than 3,000 University of Mississippi students went out into the community Saturday to work at more than 260 different locations, serving the community at local nonprofit organizations, churches, the city of Oxford and Lafayette County or at individual homee where they cleaned, painted, hauled — all to say ‘thank you’ to the community they call home for four years.

With his big brother and sister sitting next to him, surrounded by pumpkins of all sizes, 2-year-old Mack Shelton was more interested in watching the large construction equipment digging up the road on Jackson Avenue on Wednesday afternoon than smiling for his mother’s camera.
