Building a Playground in One Day? KaBoom!

Just a few weeks ago, hundreds of volunteers came together at Caulfield Park to build a rockin’ playground with KaBOOM! – in just ONE day. It was insane!

Residents of the neighborhood, Friends volunteers and employees from Amway, one of the event sponsors, started with an almost blank slate at 8:00 a.m. By 3:00 that afternoon, the park had been transformed! Not only was a huge, colorful new playground installed, but the park sign also got a little TLC.

Children from the neighboring Cook Library Center’s summer program watched the transformation take place before their eyes, and celebrated with us with the BIGGEST paper chain we’ve ever seen!

All in all, it was a blast to be a part of this project that will impact the neighborhood and it’s children for years to come.
