DESIGNED BY KIDS, BUILT BY VOLUNTEERS

On Saturday, Aug. 17, more than 200 volunteers from JetBlue, and residents of the local community along with organizers from KaBOOM! came together to build a new playground at the Broad Channel Athletic Club. The new playground’s design was based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day Event in June. This playground is the second of three planned playgrounds JetBlue and KaBoom! are building in communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Take a look on how it all went down:

 

The entire community came together to make this a successful event. Broad Channel Athletic Club members bicycled in to preserve parking spaces for volunteers. Local restaurants provided breakfast and lunch.  Local fire fighters who helped after Hurricane Sandy were also on board.  We couldn’t have asked for a better turn out. Thank you all who came!

    It is nice to see everyone in community working together. This is also an opportunity to get to know each other well. This kind of collaboration helps build a fine community.
