Students will sort donated non-perishable items between 9:30 a.m. – Noon. David Nicole, president and CEO of United Way of Allen County, will join the students at 11:00 a.m. and will be available for comment.

Alternative Spring Break challenges students to take a step out of their comfort zones to see first-hand the needs in our community. This year the focus will be on A.L.I.C.E. (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed, aka the working poor). Students from two local universities will spend four days working at and learning about local nonprofits in an effort to become more engaged and aware of the needs in their community. The participating agencies provide services in United Way’s four focus areas: basic needs, education, finical stability and healthy lives.
