Play is a bit unconventional at Peacehaven...
and thanks to the 200 volunteers who joined us on June 21 to transform the space at Peacehaven Community Farm into a playful paradise. In partnership with KaBOOM! and TE Connectivity Foundation, a new playground was constructed in just one day! This project brought our community together for a great cause - supporting healthy, active play – that will impact the residents, volunteers, friends and neighbors of Peacehaven Community Farm.
KaBOOM! is the national non-profit dedicated to the bold new goal of ensuring that all children, particularly the 16 million American children living in poverty, get the balance of active play they need to become healthy and successful adults. KaBOOM! has been a powerful champion for play since its founding in 1996, working with partners to build, improve and open more than 15,000 playgrounds, engage more than 1,000,000 volunteers and serve more than 6,600,000 children. KaBOOM! creates and catalyzes great places to play, inspires, empowers and leads play advocates, and educates and elevates the societal conversation about the importance of play in children’s lives.
