A group of college kids opted for an alternative Spring Break with United Way. Students from Scripps, Purdue, and other schools are spending their Spring Breaks on the Gulf Coast to volunteer. Wednesday, the United Way volunteers were planting tomatoes outside of Cafe Climb in downtown Gulfport. Although they are giving back, the students are happy to be enjoying the warmer weather. Inekia Johnson, a volunteer, says, “It gives back to our community. I mean, we love it. We love what we do. We have volunteers from other colleges helping us. We get to mingle and meet them. It's just a lot of fun, us coming together.” Wednesday, the United Way's collegiate volunteers helped the community in three different locations along the Coast.
