Americus - - Students at Sumter Elementary School have a reason to celebrate today.

Sumter Electric Membership Corporation presented the school with almost $5,000 for a new playground.

School administrators say students are in need of new, safe equipment for children to play on.

Sumter EMC raised the money from customers who rounded up their electric bills to the nearest dollar to help non-profit groups.  

"We announced this morning to our boys and girls that they would be getting in the near future new playground equipment and you could hear the cheers throughout the hall they were real excited," says Principal Valerie Roberts. 

Roberts hopes to have the new playground in place by December.
