SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Four years after a fatal church bus crash, volunteers came together to celebrate the victim's life and legacy on Saturday. 

12-year-old Maggie Lee Henson died after being thrown from that church bus when it flipped over. She was with a youth group from First Baptist Shreveport on their way to a church camp.

Maggie's family remembers her as someone who loved helping others. On Saturday, people from all over the Shrevport-Bossier community performed good deeds in her honor as part of the Maggie Lee Henson Celebration of Caring Day.

More than 40 volunteers continued Maggie's legacy of helping, by doing service projects like gardening and building playgrounds across the twin cities. A celebration was held in the Red River District with food, music, dancing, and because Maggie loved animals, dogs were available for adoption.
 
Saturday wasn't the only day dedicated to doing good in Maggie Lee's honor. In 2011, Shreveport's Mayor Glover officially declared her birthday, October 29th, as Maggie Lee for good day, urging people to follow her example and commit one act of kindness.
