Yes, we built a playground!!

     Holiday Season Memories

  In partnership with KaBOOM!, the CarMax Foundation donated a playground to the Interfaith Terrace community (Cochituate Homes Cooperative), through Hoops and Homework. 

  Volunteers came from everywhere: CarMax, Interfaith Terrace residents, Hoops and Homework board members, community leaders, artists and landscapers, local businesses and corporations, labor unions, and YOU- a true community event. People donated time, money, transportation services, supplies- even food to keep the volunteers fueled with energy.

  In addition to the wonderful playground equipment, volunteers constructed shade shelters, numerous picnic tables and benches, a "little library" and cornhole sets. Artists and volunteers painted incredible murals.

We can't thank you enough- and the kids and families in the neighborhood love it!
