During the first week of August, kids at Trinity Lutheran Child Care Center and Kindergarten would watch in awe and excitement as their new playground was being installed.

Director Laura Edmonds said the childcare center received numerous donations from the community, families of the church and the center. They also received a KaBoom grant through the Dr. Pepper Snapple group, which funds playgrounds in the U.S.

The donations were not just for the purchase of the playground though, many volunteers donated time and labor to build it.

“We thank the volunteers and people from the community who donated their time and labor to come and help us build it,” said Edmunds. “ It just wouldn’t have been possible without all the help.”

Cinderlite provided the sand surrounding the playground while Tahoe Truck and Transport delivered it, Gary Newell Design contributed the manpower and many others added their efforts in giving the center a new area for the kids to enjoy.

Four-year olds Jaelyn Caughran, Cameron Thompson and Camryn Wharton all agreed that they are excited about having the new play ground and enjoy climbing the rock wall, going down the slides, and playing on it with their friends.

Edmonds said the playground is for ages two to five.
