Friends of Grand Rapids Parks and Amway join us on air to talk about their efforts, along with Creston Neighborhood Association and the City of Grand Rapids, to build a new playscape at Aberdeen Park on Sept. 23. Within six hours’ time, 200 volunteers (more than 100 of whom are Amway employees) will have readied the grounds, assembled the play set and host a ribbon cutting ceremony without the aid of power tools.

Tune in to hear Steve Faber of Friends and Michelle Meulendyk of Amway’s corporate citizenship division talk about the design process with the community, purchasing equipment from the KaBOOM! program and how Aberdeen became the 13th park that has benefited from this partnership.

Music this week comes from Taken By Trees with their songs “Sunshine Lady” and “Open Field.”
