July of 2018, DESEF was awarded a grant for a brand-new playground by KaBOOM!,
the national non-profit dedicated to giving all kids the childhood they deserve
through great, safe places to play. KaBOOM! matches high-need community
organizations with funding partners to design and build a dream playground. We
were fortunate to be paired with Cox
Enterprises as our funding partner. On October 26, 2018, over 200 volunteers came out, despite pouring rain,
to build the new playground in less than 6 hours! It was an amazing day!
