BENEFITING: Detroit Achievement Academy Foundation
Last fall, DAA's first graders raised money to buy paint, swings, and chain to fix up the small city park adjacent to our school! We enlisted some friends to help us paint (Leidos) and some other friends (Cornerstone Church Detroit) to help us hang the swings and they even installed small metal soccer goals and a few benches!
For the rest of the school year, our students all enjoyed playing in the park for recess and all special occasions.
Over the summer, nearly every single swing was damaged or removed entirely. :(
We are so sad about this for so many reasons, but our students still deserve a place to play.
The breakdown of costs:
- Swing seats - $50
- Heavy-duty chains for swings - $425
- Parts/tools - $25
- Labor to fix them - donated from Cornerstone Church!
Please help us give our students a joyful place to give their brains a break during the day!
