Bringing Play to Children in Sandy-impacted areas

Earlier this year we made a pledge to rebuild New York. As part of this effort, we committed to build three playgrounds in areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy in order to reintroduce play in these communities.   

Following natural disasters, play becomes even more critical as it creates a sense of normalcy and provides an emotional outlet for kids.

Take a look at our first playground in Long Beach, NY.

 

Through our longstanding partnership with KaBOOM! we work together to create playgrounds in neighborhoods that are lacking resources, While every KaBOOM! Playground build is an inspiring event, the post-Hurricane Sandy builds give volunteers a special chance to reflect on the storm’s impact while revitalizing their neighborhoods.

The next playground build in partnership with KaBOOM! Will take place on Saturday August 17 at Broad Channel Athletic Club in Broad Channel, NY.
