COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Wednesday, the United Way brought spring break to kids who are part of their programs but may not have the opportunity to venture out of town for spring break.
The group had activities including volleyball, face painting, basketball, water balloon fights, among other things.
This is the fourth year for the alternative spring break and organizers plan for it to be a forever thing.
"We want them to know that even if they can't leave Columbus for the week for spring break like the other children do, we have a lot of fun things that we have in store for them. We have a whole afternoon worth of activities between water balloon fights and sidewalk chalk art and beach volleyball. They having lots of activity and lots of fun," said Terri Parodi, Director of the United Way Activity Center.
Anyone interested in volunteering with United Way for this event in the future can contact the activity office of the United Way.
