Supporting San Jose Parks, Trails, and Recreation Programs
San Jose Parks Foundation is partnering with the Sherman Oaks Neighborhoods, Campbell School District, the San Jose Sharks, KaBOOM! The result of this alliance will be a new playground at the coirner of Leigh and Fruitdale in San Jose.
Speaheaded by energetic community activist Ramona Snyder, the project has been talked about for nearly a year. It finally came together within the last month and with the San Jose Sharks Foundation providing the largest share of funds, it is now underway.
The Build will take place, as all KaBOOM! Playgrounds do, in one day. That day will be Friday, May 15. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS, especially from the SDherman Oaks neighborhood.
We also need to raise about $12,000 to cover our share of the construction costs. Every dollar helps, so be generous, if you are able to contribute.
