CHARLESTON, West Virginia — More than 250 people will scoop up litter in Charleston to kick off West Virginia's "Day to Serve" volunteer campaign.

The volunteers are due to arrive Friday morning on the capital city's West Side and East End.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says more than 5,500 volunteers were involved in last year's "Day to Serve" activities. They planned and participated in 570 service project across the state last year.

Over a two-week period, residents volunteered more than 17,000 hours of service.

Tomblin urged all West Virginians to roll up their sleeves and volunteer.
