If we told you a group of volunteers built an entire playground in six hours, would you believe it?
Well, that’s exactly what happened over the weekend at Pomonok Houses.
KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit organization that collaborates with partners to build playgrounds, worked with NYCHA and the Fund for Public Housing to build the colorful play space.
“We demonstrated what’s possible when a community comes together to put kids first,” said James Siegal, CEO of KaBOOM! “Play is how kids learn and grow, and also how they feel valued, protected and loved.”
Last September, KaBOOM! worked with local groups to build another community playground at the Samuel Field Y. Read more about that here.
