Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded the Samuel Field Y a $13,200 Let’s Play Improvement Grant to use toward the purchase of an Imagination Playground in a Cart™, an innovative playground equipment system, which arrived at the Samuel Field Y earlier this week!
The grant, which will allow the Samuel Field Y to install the system at their primary facility in Little Neck, also to be used at their various offsite programs with summer and after school programs, is part of Let’s Play, an initiative by DPS to provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority.
Imagination Playground in a Cart™ is an innovative design in play equipment that encourages creativity, communication, and collaboration in play. With a collection of custom-designed, oversized blue foam parts, Imagination PlaygroundTM provides a changing array of elements that allow children to turn their playground into a space constantly built and re-built by their imagination.
