“Alternative Spring Break”

Students from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County gave up their March Spring break to give back to the community for an “Alternative Spring Break” program. The students volunteered at a different location every day of the week. “I haven’t had much involvement in the community, so it’s nice to do something different every day,” Sarasota High School student Jalynn Booker said. Loveland was pleased to host 10 students, and Club Curriculum specialist Patricia McGraw, on Wednesday morning March 15, when they volunteered their time to help out. The students visited classrooms at Loveland, the Phase II Center, and even accompanied students on a wellness walk.  Boys & Girls Club volunteer Emma Venafro said, “This shows how one act can greatly affect a person’s life.”
