Alternative Spring Break 2017
Volunteers at Alternative Spring Break 2017
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley hosted its 4th annual Alternative Spring Break at Open Door Community House (ODCH) for students who participate in ODCH’s after-school program on Wednesday, March 22nd.
Alternative Spring Break provides spring break activities for students who are not going on vacation for their week-long break from school. Forty-nine students enjoyed an afternoon of face painting, hoola hooping, a water balloon toss, and playing beach volleyball and Go Fish. Approximately 15 volunteers, including students from United Way’s Youth Camp and several adults, supervised the activities.
“Alternative Spring Break is a great opportunity for the kids to enjoy a safe, fun day of spring break activities in their community,” said Scott Ferguson, President & CEO of United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley. “United Way is very involved with local schools throughout the school year with our initiatives to improve education. Alternative Spring Break is a great way for us to provide fun for the students outside of the classroom,” he added.
