Valdosta - Some South Georgia students got a break from the classroom to spend one-on-one time with a mentor Friday.

More than 500 Lowndes County second graders participated in the United Way's annual Day of Caring. Community volunteers took time off of work to spend a day of fun with the kids at Wild Adventures.

Organizers say the adults get just as much from the event as the kids do. "The kids that would not normally get to come to Wild Adventures get to have a day here and the volunteers get to see what it's like to be with a child who really needs the attention. It's really a blessing for the volunteers," said Karen Costlow, United Way Director.

Students from Valdosta City and Lowndes County schools took part in the Day of Caring. Organizers hope to include other school systems in the future.
