Sprucing Up for the New Year!
January 6, 2017
The new year brings with it cold weather and long, dark nights. But at Bridgeway Academy, we feel the warmth and light of our community on “Spruce it Up Day,” which occurs annually on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service in Central Ohio is designed to empower volunteers, strengthen communities, bridge barriers and create solutions to social problems. Volunteers are encouraged to share their time and talents in support of local charitable organizations such as Bridgeway Academy.
This year, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is Monday, January 16, 2017 and Bridgeway Academy will welcome community volunteers to paint, deep clean and participate in light construction activities throughout the facility. “We love Spruce it Up Day,” states Bridgeway Academy Co-Founder Erin Nealy. “We meet many new people while welcoming back old friends who are truly interested in making a difference for Bridgeway Academy, its students, staff and programs.”

Bridgeway Academy welcomes individuals or groups of volunteers, but asks that volunteers be ages 14 and above.

We hope that you’ll spend the morning with us too, and make areal difference for the students and staff of Bridgeway Academy.
