Help build a playground in Old Town!

100 volunteers are needed on September 13 to provide hundreds of children in the Alexandria community with a safe place to play!

In partnership with ARHA, KaBOOM! and the Washington Capitals, we're building a new $75,000 playground in Old Town's Hopkins-Tancil Court neighborhood on September 13, 2012.

The new playground will provide hundreds of children in the Alexandria community with a safe place to play. Currently, the existing equipment at S.T.A.R.S. Playground is out-dated and in need of replacement.  With your help, the new S.T.A.R.S Playground will be a place where local children will be able to play in a safe, accessible, and, most importantly, FUN environment.

To complete the playgound, 100 volunteers are needed to dig in and give underserved kids a chance to play well!
