We need skilled and unskilled workers to get this built, skilled is defined as knowing how to use a circular saw. We need help with childcare for volunteers working, serving food, art and special features. We need team captains, both skilled and unskilled, to be on site every day managing the crews of volunteers with guidance from Playgrounds by Leathers supervisors.

There are lots of ways to help – let us know what you are interested in doing when you sign up!

Want to be more involved before the build? We are working every week between now and October getting this organized. Call or email: 828.545.9571
