Build it with KaBOOM!

KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit dedicated to bringing active play into the daily lives of all kids. On a local level, KaBOOM! will be working closely with the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, with support from United Way of Forsyth County, to find sites in need of a great place to play. Ultimately, two sites will be selected to engage in an 8-10 week planning process that will end with the creation of a brand new playspace for the children in each of the communities.

Applications are now being accepted from nonprofit organizations and grassroots groups in Forsyth County that would benefit from and be interested in the process of a community-built playspace partnership.
