**We've met our $5,000 goal for purchasing the Family Literacy playset (reflected on this fundraising page)! Now we are fundraising for the floor, which costs $10,000, so our total goal is up to $15,000!**
The children of adult education students at Howard Area Community Center are asking you: please, can you help us pay for a playlot makeover? We just want to play and learn safely!
While students take ESL and GED classes, HACC cares for their children in the Family Literacy Program. Here, children learn games and activities that promote brain and motor skill development. They make friends! They have fun!
But one of the joys of childhood–playing outside– has become very difficult. The HACC playlot is old and has fallen into disrepair. Children are getting hurt while they play. THEY NOW NEED A NEW FLOOR!
All of the children in the Family Literacy Program are low-income. Getting to a local park can take take a lot of time, energy, and transit money for their parents. The HACC playlot is a game changer. Because, literally, you can play different games outside!
