ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Lee County woman's effort to build a special needs playground will become a reality next month. All she needs now is volunteers.
Three months ago, Traci Henry won $50,000 from the Pepsi Refresh Project to build Butterfly Kisses play park. It will be built on county land next to soccer fields on Starksville Road April 30th. Henry hopes volunteers will help with construction and donate the equipment needed to make the project happen.
"It's going to be a lot of labor, but we have a specific list that they gave us, such as shovels, post hole diggers, electric cement mixer, wheel barrels and such, augers," said Henry.
They're also collecting donations to pay for the cost to ship the park's equipment. Construction of the playground is expected to take about 12 hours. Here's a list of equipment needed to build the playground: 90 to 100..80 pound bags of concrete, auger for holes, 12 inch to 16 inch shovels, rakes, wheel barrels, concrete mixing hoe or power concrete mixer, gas or electric, 3/8 inch ratchets & 1/2 inch ratchets, levels, rubber hammers, carpenter hammers to open crates, stakes or something to use for footing layouts. You can make a donate to help with the freight cost on the playgrounds web site at http://www.butterflykissesplaypark.com. You can also reach Traci Henry to volunteer at (229)669-0084.
