Old Plainfield Playground Now Making Kids Happy in Kenya!

Today we have another story about items that have been retired here being used for good elsewhere.

The Plainfield Park District recently shared a photo of a park recently erected Nairobi, Kenya. That park once stood at Plainfield’s Eaton Preserve just two years ago! Eaton Preserve was renovated, which included a new playground for kids, but the old park is seeing new life in Africa!

The playground transfer was completed by Kids Around the World, a Rockford-based faith based organization that works to aid kids all over the world in many capacities, one of which is their “playground projects.”

Yesterday I posted a story of an ambulance from the Addison Fire Department being donated to Ukraine! Looks like they had a bunch of people sign it during Rock N Wheels last night! We hope it serves the people of Ukraine well!
