JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A group of Arkansas State University social work students and professors reached out to the Jonesboro community on Saturday.

The group hosted their 3rd annual Spring Into Action event.

Community members were invited to enjoy food, games, and entertainment.

One social work professor said the students have been working to organize for the past few months.

"We come and bring the social work department here and provide food and entertainment and outreach to the community," said Dr. Jody Long.   "We have several health events sponsors today, we have handed out toothbrushes as well as games for the children."

The students said they enjoyed getting to mingle with the community.

"It is wonderful to see it come together it's so much fun being involved with the community and just seeing how many people actually wanted to come out," said student Sarah Eberwein.
