We are working to raise $50,000 to help fund new playground equipment at the Chandler Town Park.
Phase 1 of our Be the Change in Chandler Playground Project creates a new play space for children ages 2-5. This playground utilizes universal design concepts to provide an inclusive play experience for children of all abilities.
Phase 1 includes:
Beyond the playground, this project will provide an additional freshly-paved area for the Chandler Parks Board to utilize in other ways for recreation. The board has discussed creating a tricycle/walking path, installing a small basketball goal for younger children, and painting playground games like hopscotch and four square in this area. This resurfacing project is included in the overall cost of the playground, but funding has already been secured by the Parks Board for this improvement.
To help raise the additional money necessary to build this new playground, 4 A Better Chandler, Inc. has come up with several fundraisers. First, you may have noticed we've added a T-shirt Shop to our website; there are a couple of designs already available, with more to come in the future. We are also holding a crowdfunding campaign on Generoisty, with exclusive incentives for different levels of support to be announced soon.
Other ways you can help (and many of you already have - thanks!) are by dropping your extra change in one of our jars at these local businesses: Casey's General Store - Chandler location, Guthrie's Pharmacy, LNB Community Bank - Chandler Branch, Kemper's Market, El Maguey in Boonville, and Chandler Utilities Maintenance Facility; by making a direct donation through our PayPal link (every donation counts!); by using our Amazon Smile link when you shop on Amazon; and simply by helping us to spread the word about our project to others.
Thanks for joining us in being the change in Chandler!
