COLORADO SPRINGS – A group of Air Force Academy Cadets will trade fun in the sun this Spring Break for helping to build or repair homes.

It’s the twentieth year for the Academy’s Alternate Spring Break program.

“The Cadet Wing is eager to support Habitat for Humanity during Spring Break again this year,” said Lt. Col. Stephani Hunsinger, deputy chief of curriculum. “The cadets will venture to eight locations across the U.S. to volunteer their time and talents to assist families in need.”

Cadets will work with Habitat for Humanity to help provide affordable housing in Bryan, Corpus Christi, and Houston, Texas; Yreka, California; Fort Smith, Arkansas; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Tupelo, Mississippi; and Thibodeaux, Louisiana.

The Alternate Spring Break Program is funded through private donations and the Cadet Wing Curriculum division.
