KaBoom – Part 2

Apr 09, 2009

We held “Design Day” for the upcoming playground build in Grand Rapids. Kids from the neighborhood of Congress Elementary drew their dream playground. The ideas are used to determine playground components, design, layout and color schemes.

      I was caught by this info about playground building. I am a Mentor in a program in urban Benton Harbor where we have an afterschool program as well as a summer enrichment program and middle school aged boys and girls mentoring programs. We are looking for someone to donate playground equipment for our site. We are located in a former United Methodist church building and have much room for a playground. We also plan to have gardening experiences for the summer program. How do I go about getting information about becoming a recipient of your program?

      Sharon, while Amway projects are primarily focused around the Greater Grand Rapids area where the bulk of our headquarters employees are located, KaBOOM! is a national organization that partners sponsors with local organizations looking for new playgrounds. I recommend you visit http://www.kaboom.org and register your playground project for consideration. Thanks! JH
