Central West End Families and Friends is being asked to provide assistance with a playground build at a St. Louis elementary school. Volunteers and tools for the build are presently in short supply given that the build date of the playground is after school has begun and because the build date is during the week. This project is similar to the one Central West End Families and Friends participated in with St. Stephen's Lutheran Church. KaBOOM is guiding the management of this playground build with Meadows Elementary and Mutual of Omaha Foundation as they did with the St. Stephen's playground build. Information about the event and how you can make this playground build a success by providing assistance is outlined below:
