Community Playground Build

We are excited to announce that two NEW playgrounds will be added to the Northeast Family YMCA campus! There will be a playground specific to preschool ages and a second designed for youth 6-12 years old. However, we need your help building these playgrounds. All skill levels welcome - if you can push a wheel barrel, you will have a job with us!

We will spend both days working with Kids Around the World from 8:00am-4:00pm and need volunteers! If you are interested in building these community playgrounds, please contact Melissa Burns at (815)885-6844 to sign up for a shift.

Both playgrounds would not have be possible if it weren't for the support from the Berry Family, UTC, Rockford Park District, and the Reno Family Foundation. We are also extremly grateful for the help and guidance from Kids Around the World.
