Building a great place to play in Indianapolis

On May 20th, KaBOOM!, Meredith Nicholson Indiana Public School 96, Clarian Health and IU Health built a great new place to play in Indianapolis. In the first week the kids were able to use the playground there were zero discipline issues- which was unheard of!

The children are incredibly active. They love the playground and are playing non-stop. Some local high school students came to help from different schools. One of the students had gone through IPS 96 and he kept talking about how much he wished he had that playground when he was younger. The high schoolers feel great ownership over the project, and are excited to bring their younger siblings to the park. In addition, people that were helping the school for the first time at the build are looking to continue to volunteer at IPS 96.

Play it forward with a donation today so we can keep making a difference in communities like Indianapolis.
