Rome Wasn't Built in a Day, But This Playground Was
You can't change neighborhoods like mine in a day. But you can still make a huge difference in that short of a time. Thanks to my good friends at The Enterprise Center and to massive efforts from both sponsoring corporations, public officials, and community residents, there's a nearby playground where one didn't exist before: "Community Builds Playground at 47th & Sansom in One Day!"
KaBoom! is a non-profit that provides the framework for these sorts of engagements. And, after months of planning, fundraising, and volunteer coordination, the one-day activity culminated in the completion of a brand-new playground.
We still have a lot of work to do around here. But a safe and clean place for the youngsters to play in is a pretty good thing to add whenever you can. I can't wait to bring my kids to it.
