BCYF Hyde Park community center to partner with KaBOOM and jetBlue for new playground

June 27, 2016

Volunteers needed!

BCYF Hyde Park Community Center will soon receive a brand new tot lot and playground next to the center thanks to KaBOOM and JetBlue along with support from the Foundation for BCYF and the BCYF Hyde Park Community Center council. While the old equipment in the Hank Fuoco Tot Lot has been cleared and the ground has been leveled, volunteers from Hyde Park (and anywhere else) are needed to help out with this exciting project on “Build Day” and “Prep Days.”

Build Day will be on Thursday, July 21, from 7:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at BCYF Hyde Park Community Center (“The Muni”), 1179 River Street, Hyde Park.  Volunteers also needed for Prep Days on July 19 and 20.

Volunteers should be age 18 and older and will assemble playground pieces, mix concrete, move mulch, and other tasks related to the project.  Volunteers should wear comfortable clothes that might get dirty, wear closed toe shoes and leave valuables at home.  Youth activities will be provided as well as gloves, goggles, breakfast, and lunch.
