G7D has been selected for a KaBOOM! grant!

KaBOOM! is a national non-profit dedicated to the bold goal of ensuring that all children, particularly the 16 million American children living in poverty, get the balance of active play they need.  This grant will will fund a 2500 square foot playground in our park on Lenore Avenue. The company that is funding the playground is Foresters Financial, an international financial services provider with offices in the US, Canada, and the UK.

Design Day will happen on July 19th!  Children will be able to submit ideas of what they think the playground should look like and parents will help to pick out the equipment that best match the dreams of these neighborhood kids.  Eight weeks later, on September 15th, the entire park will be assembled by volunteers. That's when we will need everybody's help to make it happen. That day there will be a breakfast and lunch served during the build day. If you want to be a part of this community build, email info@G7D.org.

We are also need to raise $30,000 in 30 days for this project.  This will cover our portion of the grant as well as funding to clear the land and put in a 1/8 mile walking trail to add to the park site.  Will you help us reach our goal?  Go to the Donate page and select "KaBOOM! Park Project" as the place to donate.
