AYADD Outreach Center

Founders Sandra Minor and her husband, Carl Minor, stand in front of the Adolescents and Young Adults Who Drink and Drive Outreach Center Monday morning in Killeen.

A local nonprofit aims to entertain kids out on spring break this week.

Sandra Minor, the executive director of Adolescence Young Adults Drinking and Driving, or AYADD, wants to keep area youth safe and occupied.

Minor started the organization after her son died in a car accident a few years ago. She and her husband are inspired to guide youths by instilling lifelong values.

The nonprofit will take groups of youth bowling, golfing and more at no cost to them or their families from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Friday, March 16.

“This is a fun and safe way for children to spend their time off,” Minor said.

Wednesday, children will be taken bowling at Fort Hood Bowling Alley. Golfing is next on the list for Thursday at Stone Tree Golf Club. Skating at Texas Skateland will wrap up the week on Friday.

The nonprofit wants children to arrive at the center no later than 9 a.m. Breakfast and Lunch are provided free of charge. Transportation is provided.

Events dates and time could change with notice, according to Minor.

Permission slips must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.

The AYADD Outreach Center at 1109 Dogwood Blvd. can be contacted by phone at 254-285-4284, or by email at AYADDoutreach@yahoo.com.
