Alternative Spring Breaks offered

Char-Em United Way is sponsoring Alternative Spring Breaks for area high school and college students April 1st through April 5th.

"You don't have to travel to a foreign country to have an Alternative Spring Break experience," points out Matt Knopsnider, United Way's AmeriCorps VISTA. "This project gives you the opportunity to stay home and help right here in Charlevoix and Emmet counties."

This year's Alternative Break schedule will have a different project available each day from April 1 st-April 5th. On Monday April 1st, Gold Mine North Resale Shop will need volunteers for cleaning and organizing from 1pm-4pm. Tuesday April 2nd, Little Traverse Conservancy will need volunteers for a trail clearing at the

Ray Johnston Preserve in Emmet County from 9am-1pm. Wednesday April 3rd, Manna Food Project needs volunteers to help organize, clean, and go on a food truck run. Thursday April 4th, Little Traverse Conservancy will have another outdoor project, with details to be determined by the weather. Friday April 5 th, the Bergmann Center of Charlevoix will be needing volunteers to help organize and clean their resale store. Snow or shine all projects will go ahead as planned. T-shirts and water bottles will be given away at each site.

There are limited spots available and pre-registration is required. Contact Matt Knopsnider at

education@charemunitedway.org or call Char-Em United Way directly at 231-487-1006.
