With construction of a new school underway, Cold Lake Elementary is starting a fundraising campaign to add a second playground for the school’s growing student population. The fundraising campaign kicked off with an assembly on October 20, that included a $10,000 donation from Wolverine Group Inc.
“We firmly believe that we should give back whenever possible to the communities where we work and live, and there isn’t a much better way to do that then giving our future leaders a place to grow and play safely,” said Jesse Douglas, President of Wolverine Group. “We hope this donation gives the kick start needed to make the playground a reality in the very near future.”
The school is hoping to raise $200,000 for the new playground, which is being geared towards children in the school’s preschool program, as well as students in Kindergarten to Grade 4. A group of dedicated parents has already formed a playground committee and is busy planning ways to fundraise the money needed for the new equipment.
“Cold Lake Elementary School staff, students and parents are thrilled with Wolverine’s donation for our new playground,” said Principal Kathy McKale. “We are very excited to see our dream of a new playground move closer to becoming a reality for our precious children.”
