Home Depot Adopts
Wilson Elementary Playground (& Garden)
I am going to forward you some pictures of Home Depot employees who volunteered their time to come and clean up the playgrounds at Wilson. Our playgrounds have small pebbles that have covered the concreted area, which causes several injuries a week. I mentioned this to the manager, Mike Algerio, and he offered to adopt Wilson and make improvements. Over the next few weeks they are going to remove the gravel and put in rubber mulch, they painted the basketball goals and are putting in nets. They are going to paint hopscotch forms on the concrete. On the other playground they donated soil and are going to build raised gardens so the first grade teacher can have a "living garden" to teach science in the classroom. Thanks for being our voice and letting the community know what great people there are at Home Depot!
