Tom Olson didn’t have to be at Vallejo High School on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Then again, being a retired contractor, Olson didn’t really have to be anywhere. But there he was — with about 70 others — helping work some magic around the Vallejo High School campus on Monday on behalf of Rebuilding Together Solano County.
It’s basically a pay-it-forward type deal, Olson said.
“I have one son who is handicapped and people have done a lot for him,” Olson said. “I figure I’m going to give back.”
Olson, 72, also volunteers for Habitat for Humanity.
“I’ve done this for years,” he said of volunteering.
