Our Corporate Social Responsibility team and members of our partner KaBOOM! hosted a design day for our upcoming playground build in Long Beach, NY – our first build in a Sandy impacted community. We’ll be building two more playgrounds later this year to help other communities hard hit by Sandy, our show of support for rebuilding New York’s neighborhood’s as the state’s Hometown Airline.
To kick off the planning process, our crewmembers sat down with more than 40 children, ages three through 14, and discussed the playground of their dreams; something we plan to make a reality for this struggling local neighborhood that was hard hit by the storm.
The build will take place on Saturday, May 18. We’re still finalizing locations and dates, so stay tuned for details.
