Volunteers needed for playground project
They are looking for 40 people to lend a hand with prep work at the park on Oct. 31 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 200 to help with the actual "build day" on Nov. 2 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The Oct. 31prep will ask volunteers to sort and separate all the new playground equipment into build kits; cut lumber and prepare build kits for tables and benches; and assist with digging the holes for the support posts and other tasks to prepare for the build day.
A grant from KaBOOM! Inc. is funding the work. The project is also receiving support from Disney, WTVD and several local businesses.
Volunteers will be fed. Sign up at http://keepdurhambeautiful.org/programs/oakwoodpark.
