VIDEO: Waveland Elementary Community Build

Waveland Elementary Community Build

A community build is much like an old-fashioned barn-raising. Recruit local volunteers and eager parents to participate in a Build Day. Then, organize them into committees based on skill sets and interests such as site preparation, construction, tools, security, food, child care and public relations. If your volunteers do not have playground installation experience, our Pelican Playgrounds team can provide supervisory services for your community build.

Waveland Elementary School was working within a specific budget and wanted to maximize the amount of playground equipment they could purchase. By organizing a community build and provided the equipment and materials we were able to significantly reduce installation costs and strengthen community spirit at the same time.
