    Across the country, hundreds of interns for AT&T are giving back to the community.

    Here in Dallas, more 130 interns gave their time to help others in need on Tuesday, visiting the North Texas Food Bank, Hunger Busters, Meals on Wheels and other locations.

    NBC 5 caught up with several of the interns at Dallas Life. Those interns helped prepare food for those staying at the homeless shelter by peeling potatoes and warming up donated pizza.

    The interns were not required to give back, but several said they felt good about signing up.

    "I just wanted to give back to the community that helps us so much in what we do,” said AT&T intern Madison Koontz. "If it wasn't for the public we wouldn't be a company."

    "For me, this is doing my share in giving back for what I received," said AT&T intern Mark Yang.

    Three hundred interns nationwide participated in the day of service on Tuesday.

    AT&T has encouraged its interns to give back each year for more than a decade.
