Project Playground 2.0 is in the final lap of its fundraising effort to rebuild Denville’s central playground at Gardner Field. Started in 2016 with a July 4th fundraising event at the fireworks display, the committee has raised over $165,000 towards its $250,000 goal. We appreciate the support from the citizens of Denville and surrounding towns and local businesses who have generously contributed to the effort.
Here is some important information as our fund raising activities wind down:
Old Playground Bricks – As we get closer to the deconstruction, there will be an opportunity to pick up previously donated bricks. We are targeting July 2018 to begin deconstruction. A specific date will be communicated to pick up old bricks at www.denvilleplays.com and through social media.
New Playground Bricks – A key part of our fundraising are new bricks. They are available in 2 sizes: 4“x 8” for $75 and an 8” x 8” for $150. You can also add a symbol to the brick for $5. To order a brick go to www.denvilleplaysbricks.com. There is a deadline of 6/1 to purchase.
Donations – Donations are always accepted by check or credit card. Checks should be mailed to
Denville PAL, PO Box 457, Denville, NJ 07834. Credit card donations can be made at www.denvilleplays.com. You can also donate by putting loose change in our donation jars at local businesses. We have raised over $5,500 from the donation jars!
Our next major event is the Harlem Wizards at Morris Knolls High School on 4/27. To purchase tickets as well as information on other events go to www.denvilleplays.com.
