Earlier this year, we added community service to the mission statement of the BACP. Many members have gotten involved in efforts to better our community including building fences, scraping paint, creating raised garden beds, trimming hedges, installing kitchens, and more. We're getting ready for our BIGGEST PROJECT EVER and we need your help.
On Friday, August 24th we will be working to install a playground in an affordable housing development called Beaver Farms (located behind the Bellefonte high school). Last fall we tore down the unsafe structure that used to be there. The Centre County Housing Authority has completed their part of the work which was to make the space handicap accessible and to get approval from code for our work. It is now GO TIME!
We'll have two shifts on Friday the 24th (8 am to noon and noon to 4 pm). We need people to help assemble each bench and parts of the play structure - many hands make light work, as they say. We are looking for at least 40 people so don't be shy about inviting a spouse, a teenager, a friend or a colleague to come help out!!! We will also be working there on Saturday the 25th - those jobs will be for "heavy laborers" to fill holes with concrete and spread mulch, etc. Please email Abbie ASAP if you're able to help - be sure to indicate which time frame works best for you (Friday 8 to noon, Friday noon to 4, or Saturday 8 to noon).
Thank you so much for your consideration - we look forward to continuing to Build Together!
