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.
