PIERRE BEGINS WORK ON LET’S PLAY GRANT FROM
DR PEPPER SNAPPLE GROUP AND NATIONAL NON-PROFIT KaBOOM!
Pierre, March 2014 – Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded Pierre a $20,000 Let’s Play City Construction Grant. Pierre received the grant because it was selected as a 2013 Playful City USA community by KaBOOM! on May 7 and will use the grant to build a new playground with community involvement.
The grant is part of Let’s Play, a community partnership led by Dr Pepper Snapple Group to get kids and families active nationwide. In 2011, as part of Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group made a $15 million, three-year commitment to KaBOOM!, the national non-profit saving play by ensuring there is a great place to play within walking distance of every child. Together through Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group and KaBOOM! will build or fix up 2,000 playgrounds by the end of 2013, benefiting an estimated five million children across North America.
As part of the grant agreement a committee has been formed to oversee the community build of the playground. The committee of Pastor Brad Urbach, Anne Lewis, Ryan Cumbow and Mindy Cheap will be working to recruit volunteers and raise $10.000 to complete the project. Donations are tax deductible, with a contribution of $250 individually or $500 as a group or business you will be recognized on a plaque at the playground site. If you wish to make a contribution contact Mindy Cheap, 773 7445 or firstname.lastname@example.org
