|Visible Men Academy was filled with excited children this week to have the once in a lifetime opportunity to draw their “Dream” playground to be located in South Manatee County. Over 115 residents and children participated to help select the top choices for the playground equipment. Over 20 parent volunteers and community residents stepped forward to lead the planning committee which is completely volunteer driven from the local community. The KaBOOM! Build Day will be October 19th, 2013 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm with 200 volunteers from the community working together to build the dream playground. 30 Volunteers are also needed on prep days October 17th & October 18th. If you are interested in volunteering please email Dawnyelle Singleton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new playground will provide more than 1,500 children and their families in the Bradenton community with a safe place to play. Playgrounds provide an opportunity for families to spend quality time together and get to know other families in their community. Visible Men Academy is an all-boys charter school serving more than 200 children in K-2nd grades that will open this August. Currently the school does not have a playground for its students to enjoy.
