For the first time in its two-plus-decade existence, The HUB will be open over spring break.

Bruce Allen, president of The HUB’s board, said the after-school drop-in center will keep its doors open from 1-5 p.m., Monday through Friday from April 3-7. Snack foods will be served for any kids with an appetite.

“We’ve been wanting to do it for a long time, and we finally got enough funding so that we’re able to,” Allen said.

A lack of funding forced The HUB’s in May 2016. The organization later received $20,278 in community donations which has led to its reopening. The board has also made steps to ensure it does not close again by planning fundraisers and writing grants.

The HUB’s return has been a welcome sight for South Whidbey students. Allen said The HUB has seen an average of 25 to 35 students come through its doors on a daily basis.

“We’ve been averaging a high amount of kids,” Allen said.
