After incredibly successful playground builds at the Central Queens Y in 2014, and the Bay Terrace Center of the Samuel Field Y in 2016, KaBoom! is coming to Little Neck this September to help us show our community that play matters!
The two playgrounds that have already been built have created an environment for our children to have the absolute best childhood, and have provided key assets to help our kids get the play they need to thrive.
Our agency's third KaBoom! playground will be supported by ESPN, and will be built in the parking lot of the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck. We need YOUR help, labor, and care to make this build successful, and to ensure our community's children an opportunity for balanced and active play.
This year there are three days to volunteer, beginning on September 12th and ending on September 14th. You can volunteer for one, or for three. In total we need around 30 volunteers for prep days on September 12th and 13th, and 100 for build day on September 14th. If you'd like to volunteer your time to help us with this exciting project, and to find out more information on the specifics of our build day, including what we'll need from volunteers, please click here. All volunteers MUST register online. All volunteers will be fed breakfast and lunch, as well as supplied with proper instruction and equipment for safety.
We are also in need of vital tools to help us physically both prepare for and build the playground. If you would like to donate, or even possibly lend us any saws, shovels, wheelbarrows, or power drills, or to see what other tools we need, please send an email to [email protected].
If you're unavailable to attend any of our prep or build days, or would like to make a monetary donation to this important project, you can visit our donation's page, and select "KaBoom! Playground Build (September 2017)" when designating your gift. We thank you in advance.
We can't wait to build this newest playground together, and we're beyond excited to have another opportunity to bring our community together both in the present day and for the future.
