Groups of Fresno State students joined the university's Alternative Spring Break program this week to do community service in the area.
One group worked at the Fresno Rescue Mission's Rescue The Children facility building two playgrounds from the ground up, painting and decorating three rooms with attached bathrooms for residents with the Adopt-a-Room project and coordinating activities with the children and families on site.
Another group helped at the Ronald McDonald House, which serves families with patients at next-door Children's Hospital Central California in Madera County.
Alternative Spring Break is designed to give Fresno State students the opportunity to serve the local community and see the impact they can make in people's lives. It runs Monday through Thursday during the campus spring recess.
