Neighborhood House, DISCOVER, and Delaware Community Foundation are constructing a kid-designed playground to ensure kids have a safe, inclusive place to play. This is part of a nationwide effort by KABOOM! to end playspace inequity – the reality that places to play are not available to every child, especially in communities of color. This project will provide a state-of-the-art playground to hundreds of children each year.
Last month, our kids shared drawings of their dream playspaces with project organizers. These ideas were integrated into the new playground design. The new playground will accompany the opening of our new preschool and provide play opportunities for the kids in our afterschool program.
No matter your skill level or ability, your help is needed to bring this playground to life.
Rain or shine, Build Week is happening from Wednesday, November 2 to Friday, November 4. The day starts at 8 AM and ends at 3 PM. Lunch, snacks, and bottled water will be provided, along with gloves and other safety materials for the projects that require them.
This is all-hands-on-deck moment for Neighborhood House — an opportunity to invest some of your own sweat equity into a playspace our kids have been dreaming about.
We're on the homestretch, and we'd love to walk the last mile with you. Please consider volunteering for Build Week. We really do need your help.
