Hello MGoBloggers! The nonprofit I work for is looking for additional volunteers to help build a playground in Flint next Friday, July 27. KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit that works with cities and child-centered nonprofits to help create places for kids to play. Each year we build 130+ playgrounds, each designed by the kids who will use them and built in one day with 200 volunteers. You can learn more about KaBOOM! at kaboom.org.
Next Friday we are building a playground at Richfield Public School Academy (3807 Center Rd, Flint, MI 48506) and we need a few more volunteers if you have the day available and want to do something awesome with your time. Our projects start at 8:30 AM with an empty lot and end at 2:30 PM with a completed playground. We have work for all levels of skill and physical ability. Because it is a construction site, closed-toe shoes are required and clothes you don't mind getting dirty are advisable. We build rain or shine. Breakfast, lunch, beverages and a volunteer shirt will be provided.
You can sign up online in advance (https://www.tfaforms.com/4680681) or just come on Friday morning to register. Come at 8:00 AM so you can grab breakfast before we get started. If you have any questions, you can email me sarah @ kaboom.org.
