200 Volunteers Improve Boston Kids’ Lives & Futures with Play 

More than 200 volunteers from Target (@TargetNews), Garfield Elementary School , City of Revere (@Revere_MA)  organizers from KaBOOM! (@kaboom) and the community will join forces on September 21 to give area kids the childhood they deserve by building a new playground at Garfield. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in August.

Partners join forces to create a new playground at Garfield Elementary School

September 21, 2016; 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.

A playground is more than a playground. It’s a brain-expander, friend-maker and muscle-builder. Play is central to a kid’s ability to grow into a productive adult. It can transform children from sedentary, bored and solitary to physically, mentally and socially active. Since 1996, KaBOOM! has been dedicated to the bold goal of giving all kids – particularly those growing up in poverty in America – the childhood they deserve, filled with balanced and active play, so they can thrive. With its partners, KaBOOM! has built, improved and opened nearly 16,300 playgrounds, engaged more than one million volunteers, and served 8.1 million kids (#playmatters).

The new playground will bring more than13,000  kids in Boston one step closer to having the play-filled childhood they deserve. In building this playspace together, we are making it easier for all kids to get balanced and active play and making Boston more playful.

Currently, there are 1,300 children in the Garfield School. This new playground will offer the students and residents in the community access to active living space that is essential to creating healthy habits that last a lifetime

Partnering with KaBOOM! is part of Target’s ongoing efforts to help make wellness more affordable, accessible and inspirational for its team members, guests and communities. Through this partnership, more children will have the joyful childhood they deserve.
