President and First Lady Volunteer on National Service Day

SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- President Barack Obama and First lady Michelle Obama volunteered on National Service Day on Saturday.

The couple stepped out of the White House to help stain a bookshelf at Burrville Elementary School in Washington D.C., as part of a City Year renovation project, and they were joined by about 500 volunteers.

During the volunteer project, Obama said, “ I hear reports that the very young people did some really good work and some of the older folks like me who it hurt get on our knees, kind of bending down a little bit, we were able to manage also, and somehow Michelle looked stylish the whole time she was doing it.”
