Photos: Fort Lauderdale KaBOOM! Playground Build


Last weekend, we completed our 16th playground build with our partner, KaBOOM! More than 200 volunteers turned out to construct a dream playground for the children of charter school Kathleen C. Wright Leadership Academy. Before our build, the children were bussed to an offsite location to play, since there was no grounds or facilities to accommodate recess. The teachers and children were incredibly moved by the turnout of volunteers and their dedication to the project; in fact, our speedy team completed the build in approximately five hours—way ahead of schedule!

Joining our crewmember volunteers and KaBOOM! representatives were fans of the Florida Panthers, the professional hockey team we sponsor. Approximately 60 members of the Panthers staff came out to participate in the playground build, making this the first time we’ve ever KaBOOM!-ed with one of our sponsor partners.
