Want to Help Build a New Playground?


A neighbor email this to me and asked me to post it:




Sign Up to Help Build a New Playground at 45 P Street NW

I am a local parent who is excited about the new playground that will be built at the Associates for Renewal in Education (ARE) facility at 45 P Street NW. The playground will be open to the public when school is not in session so it will be a great benefit for kids in the neighborhood. I talked with the project manager from Kaboom which is sponsoring the playground to get some more details.

Volunteers are needed to help build the playground on Thursday, Sept. 15 from 8:30 am-2:30 pm. You can sign up to volunteer and to receive updates from Kaboom at http://projects.kaboom.org/projects/5201-washington-capitals No building experience is required, and gloves, dust masks and sunscreen will be provided for volunteers. There will be supervision for youth with some activities, but I don’t know the age range for the kids who will be supervised.

ARE has served the DC area for more than 30 years, and the organization provides child care and pre-kindergarten classes at 45 P Street NW. You can read more about ARE HERE I hope our community gets behind this project and rolls up our sleeves to help! Another playground would be a great addition to the neighborhood.
Best,
Brendan L. Smith
