The Scoop on KaBoom! Build Day at the Princeton YMCA/YWCA
As you walk through the hallways of the Princeton Family YMCA and the YWCA Princeton, pictures line the walls of a childâ€™s dream playground. The children of the Princeton YM/YWCA had the opportunity to design and draw their dream playground, a playground that will soon become a reality to the joint facility.
The Princeton Family YMCA and YWCA Princeton along with KaBOOM!, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing communities together by building playgrounds, will be holding their KaBOOM! Build Day on September 26th on the field of the joint facility located at 59 Paul Robeson Place in Princeton.
What child wouldnâ€™t want to watch a playground be built? This is your chance to get your family together and come see a playground be built from the ground up. Many local vendors have teamed up to donate food and drinks throughout the day. Come out and support the YMCA and YWCA and meet some local merchants.
A Community Play Date will be planned for the site in the near future, but a date has not yet been set. The playground will be open not only to YM/YWCA members, but the entire community.
KaBOOM! has worked with numerous organizations throughout the country to provide playgrounds in the community. For more information on building a playground in your area or where to find a KaBOOM! Playground visit http://www.kaboom.org.
