BBN team seeks assistance with building of accessible playground


Our Beyond Belief Network Team Tri-State Freethinkers is looking for some help with their latest community service project, an accessible playground for all children.

According to Tri-State Freethinkers, "North College Hill is a small city on the outskirts of Cincinnati. The public school has many disadvantaged students, 80% of whom qualify for free or reduced lunch. In some areas of town there aren't any safe or accessible playgrounds.

There is a local effort to build a magnificent new playground for the students. The PTA has already received a $15,000 KaBOOM grant from Dr. Pepper/Snapple, but other donations have fallen short of the goal.

The playground will be built on property that is owned by an organization that helps the blind. It will also be located next to city soccer fields. The plans incorporate sensory stimulating accessories for the visually disabled and active-play fitness equipment for the young athletes.

Tri-State Freethinkers will send volunteers to help build this playground, and they will receive credit on the signage and in the media. We only need a minimum of $5000 to make this playground a reality. Consider donating in honor of Tri-State Freethinkers to show the kindness and generosity of atheists and humanists."
