Volunteers Build Main Street School’s New Community Playground
More than two dozen volunteers – including teachers, parents and community members – pitched in to start building Main Street School’s new community playground during the first community build on June 2. They spent more than nine hours digging, framing, creating molds, shaping concrete, laying the border, spreading mulch and raising the playground pieces into place.
“It was a true community build with parents, teachers and staff of MSS and community members coming together to build the playground,” Principal Joyce Chapnick said. “Thank you to the amazing volunteers. Our students will have a new playground because of their generosity of time.”
The project for the state-of-the-art, dynamic and inclusive playground has been generously supported by the Irvington Education Foundation and the community’s fundraising efforts. During the second community build, which will be held on June 9, volunteers will unload and unpack playground equipment, anchor base plates to concrete footers and hang basket swings to complete the project.
The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new playground is scheduled for June 23 at 10 a.m. as part of the Celebrate Irvington Day events.
If you are interested in helping for the all-day build on June 9, please contact Joyce Chapnick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
