Most students spend their spring break vacationing with family or friends, but one group of teenagers decided to try an alternative spring break.
A group of Bowling Green students from the Broadway United Methodist Church are devoting three days of their break serving various Bowling Green non-profits.
As part of Project BG, the teens spent the afternoon landscaping at Girls Inc.
Greenwood Campus Minister Ben Kickert said Project BG is designed for young people to experience the joy of helping others and our community.
“It’s a joy at the end of the day of hard work ... a fulfilling day and we don’t really, I think it’s great doing it around our town, Bowling Green. Seeing the work being done here ... I think it’s amazing,” said Paige Jonson, a junior at Greenwood High School.
The students have already volunteered at the Best Center for Independent Living, the Humane Society and the Salvation Army and they plan to do more tomorrow!
Each of the community service projects were set-up through the Alive Center.
