Spring break is a great opportunity to have some fun, and it’s also a time when our local students can learn about giving back. Perfect for students from elementary school through college, this is an opportunity for students to give their time during their Spring Break and make a difference in their own backyard.

It takes a village to welcome a child into this world, which is why we host our annual Community Baby Shower each spring. Through this event, volunteers help throw a baby shower for Central Florida’s new and expecting parents.
