We extend our sincerest thanks to the Quigley and Saltzman Families for sponsoring the Tot Swing Set which is one of the newly installed play-pieces at Kids Castle for children ages 2 to 5 years old.
We also thank Lauren Sheehan, a long time Kids Castle volunteer who worked with these sponsors to secure the donation. Thank you Lauren!
Sponsorships are still available and vary in price depending on the new play piece you choose. To see which play pieces are still available to sponsor, go to the Sponsorship section of our website.
The goal achieved through these ongoing donations is a new play environment at Kids Castle that welcomes children of all abilities including those with sensory processing disorders, autism, and people of all ages using wheelchairs and other mobility devices.
While play is an important part of children’s developmental needs, it has to be fun enough for them to want to be part of the experience and the ongoing improvements at Kids Castle will provide that opportunity for all children.
As part of our plan, when the funds are raised we will also be adding a new shock absorbing safety surface throughout the playground called poured-in-place which is used to form a unitary surface.
This type of surfacing makes it easier for wheelchairs, people using other mobility devices and strollers to enter and navigate in the play-space, unlike engineered wood fibers or other loose materials.
To achieve these goals, we are actively pursuing grants, ongoing donations and sponsorships so we can add these new play pieces and create this Inclusive play environment.
While we are making progress, we can only continue forward with your financial support.
There are also many ways to contribute at all giving levels with a donation in any amount through our Donate Your Way program which can be found on our website at www.SaveKidsCastle.org/Donate-Now
Thank you again to the Quigley and Saltzman Families for your generosity and ongoing support of Kids Castle!
