Have you volunteered yet?
We are just 4 WEEKS away from building our playground! We are counting on you as a volunteer. Our build dates are Wednesday, May 14th through Sunday, May 18th.
There are 3 shifts on each day – Morning (8am-12pm), Afternoon (12:30pm-5pm) and Evening(5:30-8/9pm). If possible we would like to know which shift and days you are available and would like to volunteer. There are many different areas to help: construction, art, childcare, food service, tools check-out, materials check-out, “light duty”, volunteer check-in/out,
We still need volunteers! There is a job for everyone – young, old and in between! Lunch & Dinner are provided, and FREE childcare is also available for all shifts! (ages 6m -9). Children ages 10-13 are welcome to assist at the site alongside their parent, and children ages 14-17 can help at the build site in almost any way (no power tools)! Please help enlist your friends, neighbors, and family to make a day of it!
The build is rain or shine! Thank you for your time and effort in seeing this amazing COMMUNITY project through to completion!Sign up to volunteer here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1CKmbaR3BzzGeAixNWla5nMi2Dr-aRbaNNrgoZH40v4g/viewform
We have exciting news to share with you about our organization, Sycamore Park Playground Project, sponsored by the MOMS Club of Blairstown. Our goal is to create a community-built playground at Sycamore Park that promotes active play, stimulates imagination and is accessible to all children, regardless of ability. We would like to share this incredible opportunity with you to build community goodwill through sponsorship or partnership.
The MOMS Club of Blairstown is a local non-profit group, EIN # 75-3022441, formed under the International MOMS Club, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Although the playground is going to be located on town property, the town is not directly involved with the fundraising for the playground; we are a separate entity. We are committed to building an exciting new venue for childhood entertainment, exercise and education right here in Blairstown, NJ. Our organization is formed exclusively of volunteers. Therefore, 100 percent of all fundraising dollars go directly toward the playground project.
We have chosen to work with Leathers & Associates, a local design firm that specializes in custom-design community-built projects. Leathers has designed more than 2,800 projects throughout the US and seven foreign countries. Together, our goal is to build a unique 8,000 square foot playground at Sycamore Park.
The playground will be built by hundreds of volunteers from the community. Building the playground with free volunteer labor will save over 25% of the cost compared to a manufactured installed playground. This means every dollar will buy much more fun for the children of our community and all those who visit the park! The total budget for the playground is estimated to be $100,000. We need the assistance of major corporate sponsors and partners to complete our funding needs and make this dream a reality.
