APRIL 5, 2019 | BARRINGER ACADEMIC CENTER
United Way is bringing together companies across our community to build a new playground for Barringer Academic Center, located in west Charlotte, as part of the annual Charlotte Playground Build.
A safe, fun school playground can cost over $80,000. We invite you to be part of the 2019 Charlotte Playground Build by becoming a sponsor. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $15,000 and offer the opportunity for your team members to volunteer to construct the new playground on April 5, 2019.
When you and your co-workers volunteer to construct a playground, you’ll find yourselves inspired and fulfilled by the immediate results of your efforts. Plus, you will discover it’s the perfect way to build teamwork and a creative sense of play within your company!
Become a Playground Build sponsor by contacting Bob Young at 704-371-6276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Download Details
