Building a dream playground for Kids

The Shutterfly Foundation partnered with KaBOOM! to fund and build the Eden Area YMCA. On a  beautiful day, we had the pleasure of helping the kids’ dream come true. It was exciting to know that our direction came directly from children in the area who would be using the playground. On ‘Design Day’ a few weeks ago they had designed their ‘dream playground’ and we spent a day bringing it to life.

200 of us from Shutterfly, the YMCA and the local community built the play structure and completed other beautification projects in six hours. It was amazing to work side-by-side with so many different people, meet new people from with Shutterfly and forge stronger relationships with colleagues outside the work environment.

But above all, it was most satisfying to see the end result of our day and knowing that many young children would spend hours laughing and playing here every day.

Did I mention, our CEO, Jeff Housenbold pitched in too?
