Volunteers to Build New KaBOOM Playground in Wrigley
2011-02-10 · By Editor
More than 200 volunteers from Foresters, the Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance, the City of Long Beach, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the local community will join forces on this Saturday, to build a new playground at the Wrigley Pocket Park
located at 21st Street and Riverbed, west of San Francisco Avenue.
The new playground’s design is based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day event in December. The playground build will also include a Foresters Family Fun Zone featuring arts & crafts, games and activities for families and children throughout the day.
Want to volunteer? Join in building the new playground from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 12. All ages welcome. No prior experience is necessary. Snacks and drinks will be provided. If you need more information or would like to volunteer to build, please contact Jill Hill at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 562-212-9397.
