Donate to the Playground Fund

$350.00 raised
Goal: $2,000.00

NCC purchased the property for The Children's Playground in 1996 after raising $90,000 for costs and organizing volunteers to build the original playground. It served a great purpose for decades, but after recent years of neglect, it was time to breathe new life into the playground. NCC collaborated with several residents and NCC members to secure a grant from KaBOOM! and in September of 2016 a new play scape was erected. 

In 2016, the NCC Playground Fund provided: 

• Tools, lunch, and organizational support for 200+ community volunteers 

• A large recycling container for recycling all of the packaging materials

• Clean & ADA accessible portable bathrooms with hand washing stations for volunteers

• A grand opening party after completion

 

WHAT THE PLAYGROUND FUNDS PAY FOR

These are some examples of what your contribution can provide at The Children's Playground:

• $250 - One cookout in the park

• $350 - Tool rental for volunteer events

• $600 - Recycling and bathrooms for events
