Volunteers needed for Willow Oaks playground project
A new playground will be built in a day at Willow Oaks School in Menlo Park, thanks to volunteers from SAP America, Adobe, the Ravenswood City School District, and local residents. Organized by KaBOOM!
, there's plenty of room for more volunteers at the event scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 19. If interested, contact Willow Oaks School principal Cindy Chin at (650) 329-2850.
The playground's design is based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day event in August.
The new playground will provide more than 600 children at Willow Oaks School with a safe place to play. Currently, the children attending the school only have 20-plus year old playground equipment.
No experience is required to volunteer, and there are jobs for people of all ages and abilities. Food and drink will be provided.
