Owens will host outreach events

BLADE STAFF

Area residents are invited to help make a difference in the lives of others by participating in a series of community outreach events during Owens Community College’s Spring Charity Week.

Today through Thursday, various activities will occur daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Student Health and Activities Center on the campus on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township. Spring Charity Week is coordinated by the college’s Student Activities Office

Each day, participants will have the opportunity to engage in several hands-on activities, which will include constructing and decorating Valentine’s Day cards for area senior citizens. Additionally, attendees will be encouraged to provide an inspirational message within each card. Charity Week volunteers can also assist in assembling “smile bags” filled with such items as coloring books, crayons, a photo frame magnet craft kit, notepads, and stuffed animals for children involved with the Dental Center of Northwest Ohio. The final Charity Week project will provide individuals with the chance to create fleece rope dog toys for local animal shelters.

For more information about the event, call 567-661-2569 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 2569.
