ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

People in Adrian are coming together to help support victims of human trafficking.

A fundraiser will be held at the UAW hall in a few weeks to support the Children's Lantern, an organization that helps local victims of human trafficking. Organizers say donated goods and a Valentine's Day hotel package will be auctioned off at the fundraiser event. They say it's made possible by the whole community coming together.

"We're a group of friends that have gotten together and decided to give back to the community," explained David Alm. "A lot of them are long-time residents that are born and raised here, and they just want to give back and see it be a better community."

The event will be held Feb. 6 at 1460 E Beecher Road. Money raised will help expand shelters for trafficking victims.
