In response to the outpouring of support from the community to repair and reconstruct our beloved playground, we have created this dedicated webpage for residents, community stakeholders and anyone with a shared experience or connection to Project S.W.I.N.G to make a financial contribution through PayPal.
When you click the “Donate” button, you may make a contribution in any amount. And because PayPal charges a transaction fee, there is an option to offset that fee, if you so choose. We thank you in advance for your generosity and investment in the future of Project S.W.I.N.G.
As we move forward, the city has agreed to an ad-hoc committee of stakeholders who were instrumental in the 1997 community-wide construction of the playground to coordinate the fundraising effort and serve as liaison on the project with the city, led by City Commissioner John Valdes, including Mike Davis, Les Thomas, Philip McDaniel, and Troy Blevins.
The city anticipates completing repairs and reconstruction in order to re-open the playground by summer of 2022, which will mark the 25th Anniversary of Project S.W.I.N.G.
