We’re proud to announce a partnership with K.C. Wright Leadership Academy and KaBOOM! to build a playground on the school’s premises further highlighting the airline’s commitment to Ft. Lauderdale and the surrounding community. JetBlue and KaBOOM! joined forces with the Florida Panthers and their fans to build the first-ever playground at K.C. Wright Leadership Academy in Tamarac, FL. The children who attend K.C. Wright Leadership Academy do not currently have a playground to enjoy. Understanding that children discover the world through play, the new playground will provide more than 150 children in the local community with a safe source of recreation. The new playground’s blueprint is based on drawings created by children from the school who participated in a Design Day event in September.
JetBlue and long-standing partner KaBOOM! have worked together over the last seven years to build safe places to play for children across the airline’s network. This partnership has successfully engaged more than 3,000 volunteers and served more than 8,000 children through 16 playground builds. The playground at K.C. Wright Leadership Academy marks the fourth build in Florida through the collaboration.
