A New Playground for Westlake Students
Please join us in giving thanks to God for providing the resources to replace the elementary playground structure at Westlake. We are grateful to our friends at Casa D’Oracion for completing the demolition of old playground.
The new playground project includes replacing part of the chain link fence and installing new wood playground mulch. The existing swing set will be painted and refurbished with new swings.
We already have $21,000 committed toward our $25,000 goal. You can donate or raise awareness by sharing our playground crowdfunding campaign. You can also make your own fundraising page and share it via email and social media.
