Despite the heat, throngs of volunteers turned out yesterday to build a playground at Costa Park in Revere, Massachusetts. The venture was a team effort with our partners at KaBOOM! as well as The Neighborhood Developers and the City of Revere to build our 14th playground.
This is our fourth playground build in Boston and the second built in Costa Park. This past October, we built the 5-12 year olds of Revere a playground; this new play space is for 2-5 year olds. The new playground will provide a safe play space for 500 children. Crewmembers from our station at Boston Logan International Airport, where we’re the largest airline with more than 45 destinations, volunteered our efforts to help build the playground in just one day’s time. We’ve helped to build playgrounds in Kissimmee and Orlando, Florida, Long Island City, New York, Long Beach, California, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Washington D.C., among other cities.
