Playground Committee Help

Secord Playground Committee needs your help!

As part of the community league, the playground committee is partnering with David Thomas King school, area residents and key stakeholders on developing a new playground near the new school. Playgrounds are not a requirement for new school construction, which means the responsibility lies with the community league and area residents. The Committee is working on building a playground so the students and the kids in Secord can have a place where they can laugh and play outside!

How can you help?

1. We are looking for more volunteers to be part of our committee! We would like participation from individuals representing a variety of backgrounds, such as:
• Seniors
• Young adults (ages 20-30)
• School rep
• Business rep
• Youth

2. We need to raise a lot of money! If you work at or know of any organization that will match an employee’s donation, please consider giving to the Secord playground. If you know of a business that can donate, sponsor, or provide items for a silent auction, please let us know!

If you are interested in being part of the committee or could help fundraise, please contact Melody Wilson (melody@relife.ca).
