The staff of D&S – Cookeville, TN recently took part in building an amazing new playground called the “Heart of the City Playground”. We were pleased to be a part of this community-built playground that will enable play and imagination regardless of physical abilities. The all-inclusive playground was built in Dogwood Park, which is already beautiful with fountains, walking paths and plenty of grass to play on and is already a favorite spot for those supported by D&S here in Cookeville, TN.
Just as the project kicked off, Cookeville was hit with storm after storm. But, as the saying goes “come rain or shine”, so we put on our D&S t-shirts grabbed a shovels, screw guns and hammers and got to work. Although we were wet and covered in mud it warmed our hearts to see our co-workers and other volunteers working together for such a wonderful cause. Regardless of the weather, the playground turned out to be even more wonderful that we had hoped!
As part of our sponsorship, D&S has left a custom footprint with a D&S paver built into the walkway. We are proud to have been a part of such an amazing project and are overjoyed to give our supported individuals a place to learn, grow, play and socialize.
