Wartburg College students take part in day of service

WAVERLY (KWWL) -

Students at Wartburg College joined in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to offer service to their neighbors. They used the day to promote disaster preparedness and volunteerism in the community.

"I'm just excited that we have such a good turnout and that the students are really taking this opportunity to give back and serve their community just like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted us to do," said Renee Sedlacek, Service Learning Coordinator.

Some of the students went door to door handing out Red Cross information on being ready for floods and fire. They also reminded people to check the batteries in their smoke detectors.
