MLK Jr. Day volunteer opportunities

Defi­ance High School’s National Honor Soci­ety mem­bers are not tak­ing Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. Day off on Mon­day. Instead, stu­dents have cre­ated a long list of projects where indi­vid­u­als can vol­un­teer as a trib­ute to the fallen civil rights leader. The film “Selma” will be shown at the Defi­ance Library with a pre­sen­ta­tion about the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of the march. Vol­un­teers are needed at 4:30 p.m. Or folks can put care pack­ages together for the troops at Fair­lawn Haven in Arch­bold from 2 to 4 p.m. One group will clean the Defi­ance County Senior Cen­ter from 1 to 4 pm, and the YMCA from 1 to 3. If you want to par­tic­i­pate in any of the events, call the High School today.
