Building a playground in one day

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) A new playground is now in place at Ellington Academy in Grand Rapids. The project was a partnership between GREAAT Schools, Amway, Ellington Academy, and KaBOOM!

Students at Ellington Academy got the chance to help design the first playground at their new school. They gave input to the builders and organizers on ideas like basketball courts, slides, an obstacle course, and monkey bars. The project helped the kids get creative on what they would like to see on their playground.

More than 200 volunteers from Amway helped lend a hand in putting together a playground. The company says it’s important for its employees to volunteer and do good work in the community.
