On Friday, October 16, more than 200 volunteers from JetBlue, The Pride Center, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the Wilton Manors community in Fort Lauderdale, FL will join forces to help restore play for more than 4,500 local kids and families.

This joint task force will help give local kids the childhood they deserve by building a new playground at The Pride Center, the first LGBTQ Center in the nation to have a playspace on their campus. This playground will provide the kids and families who utilize The Pride Center, as well as those in the surrounding community, with a safe and accessible place to socialize, grow and thrive together. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in August.

As we prepare for this build, take a look at our previous work with KaBOOM! to restore play to children in need in 22 communities to date.
