Recently, over 300 volunteers built a new playground for the Durham Head Start Leathers-Meachem Center. Volunteers from Delta, KaBOOM!, the Airport Authority, the Durham community, and students from surrounding universities got to work to give the children a safe place to play and enjoy the outdoors.
This was Delta’s 17th KaBOOM! build since 2013 and is the first one in our area. KaBOOM! is a national non-profit. Their organization is dedicated to giving all kids the childhood they deserve. KaBoom’s #PlayMatters program has built and improved thousands of playgrounds across the country. The new play area for the Durham Head Start Leathers-Meachem Center consisted of installing a new slide, rock climbing wall, balance beam, activity walking path, picnic tables, and more to replace equipment that was over 15 years old.
The weekend had lots of awesome activities planned for kids. There was a martial arts demonstration, music, and other activities like pick-up soccer games, tug-of-war, and much more.
The Durham Head Start Leathers-Meachem Center’s goal is to engage, support and empower children and families in the community to be successful in school and life. They do this by providing services such as early childhood education, job assistance, parenting classes, job skills training, and health and wellness classes. The playground will help with this goal as it’s expected to serve over 1,000 kids in the Durham area.
