Volunteers spend spring break in State College giving back
By: Lauren Hensley
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.-- Dozens in State College spent their spring break giving back to the community. More than 20 volunteers took part in State College Presbyterian Churchs "Serving Upside-down" spring break. Organizers said this venture was for people to get out in the community and not only learn about local nonprofits in the area but also to give them a helping hand. 6New spoke with volunteers who attended the event.
I guess it was a good experience especially since we didn't really know everything was here. Like Hearts for the Homeless, for example, was right under Dunkin' Donuts and I didn't even notice it until we went there, volunteer Elizabeth Potter said.
I read the weather to the 96-year-old there, people and I cleaned some dishes and afterwards I played some music on the piano, Jenae Potter, another volunteer, said.
Volunteers helped out at places in State College like the Food Bank, Out of the Cold, Meals on Wheels and Centre Peace.
