Did you know that Bear the dog has raised $5,750 in just 3 days for his surgery, or a researcher who is hoping to attend a photo workshop has raised $2,000 in 7 days or the new teacher who has raised $1,180 in 10 days to buy resources for her class. These people can do it why can't we do it to build a playground for the kids. PASS THIS ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Let's get the word out - we need donations to finish paying for the materials for the Playground. Remember there will be a drawing for a $100 Visa Gift Card - for every $10 your name will be placed in the bucket ($100 = 10 chances).
Almost to 2% of the overall goal. Let's keep it going!!
Thank you to the people who have donated to the Playground. Unfortunately we could not build in August 2014 but we will be able to build in July 2015 as long as the Community helps with donations and volunteers. The count for volunteers is 100 per shift (morning, afternoon & evening). We only had about 50 people signed up to help build along with one of our wood vendors pulling out at the last minute made us have to make the very difficult decision to postpone the build.
We need more people on committees, volunteers to help build, money to finish paying for the last shipments of lumber. All the playground equipment has been delivered as well as one of the shipments of lumber. A large portion of specialty hardware has already been delivered and is patiently awaiting to be used to build the playground.
Please pass this along to friends and family. The children of the community deserve a playground help us achieve that goal before July 2015.
Just saying!!! There has been no action in 9 days on the site and there are 8 days to go before we build. Anyone want to donate today!!!
Well the time is drawing near and the spark that started has now dulled. We are $7,600 short to pay for one of the lumber deliveries because they are now requiring us to pay 1/2 up front instead of the full amount 30 days after delivery. This isn't looking good for a playground build - just saying!!
THANK YOU to everyone out there for there donations so far. We still have a long way to go but that speck is starting.... keep up the good work and spreading the word to your friends and family!!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to everyone who is sharing our Gofundme.com account and for the generous donations being made. They are very much appreciated by the children of the community who will be receiving a new playground to play on.
WE HAVE 3-1/2 WEEKS BEFORE THE BUILD..... PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING ....
Still no more donations :(
It's another new week. Count down is starting - 24 more days until we start construction. Let's get some more money into this account so we can keep on track. Pass this onto friends and family.
If I set the goal for $1000.00 and when we reach that make it $2000.00 and so on do you think more people would give?
I'm confused - When I was approached 18 years ago to help build a playground people were really excited to donate and help. 18 Years have gone by and a new playground should be built but no one wants to donate or help? Help, Help me understand? PLEASE!!
Thank YOU to all the supporters for helping with this project for the children of the Community. YOU are the reasons that this playground will be built August 20-24, 2014. Without YOU the dream would not become a reality.
The children of the community had a dream 18 years ago and YOU the community stepped forth and helped to make that playground a reality. Please step forward today and make this dream a reality for this generation and the generations of the future. THANK YOU!!!
OK everyone - It's a new week, a fresh start. How about we each pass this message on to 1 or 2 people we know and ask them to donate. Have a great week and lets hope the sun shines on all of us!!
Well we were on a roll - guess we hit another road block!!
Did anyone guess what the last message was about?
It hasn't happened yet ... we're still trying ... just a little more ...
LOOK we're almost at 1% of our goal!!! Just a little more....we can do it, we can do it, we can do it!!!!
It's coming along everyone!!!! WOOHOO!!! This is soooo exciting. The more we share this with others the more donations we can get to BUILD THIS PLAYGROUND!!!!
This is an awesome start - pass this on and let's build a playground for the kids!! Forward to friends and family - everyone will be put into the drawing.
Lets get creative with this fundraiser seeing it's not going real well. Lets up the ante and start a drawing. For every $10 donation made to Gofundme.com/5lk4ww to the playground you will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Visa Gift card. I'll check back everyday to see if anyone has donated and put their name in the jar. On AUGUST 15, 2014 I will draw a winner. I might even have runner up drawings. LET'S START NOW!!!!
Check out our Facebook page "Community Playground at Resica" for our upcoming fundraisers. They are also posted on the calendar of events page.
The Playground Build date has been changed to July 9 - 13, 2014. We are looking to finish up with our fundraising by June 30, 2014. Please donate now we need your help!!
Hey everyone - well you should all know by now that we are going to have to rebuild the playground behind Resica because of new insurance codes. Well this site is a great opportunity for us to raise those funds without tapping out all the same businesses in the area. We are looking for donations from $1.00 - ?. Whatever you can spare would be great. We would like to have all the funds needed by June 1, 2014. The build date is June 11 - 15, 2014.
Please consider donating to this great community project. The entire structure is built by community volunteers in 5 days. We picked those dates because we want to open the playground on Father's Day just like we did 18 years ago with the original playground. What great memories we had back them and what great new memories we will be making again. The kids will be in awe as they watch the playground grow from the ground up and to watch them run onto the playground when the ribbon is cut will just give everyone the greatest feeling of satisfaction.
If you would rather not donate on-line then please consider a $25.00 check donation by sending to:
Resica PTO Playground
Resica Elementary School
1 Gravel Ridge Road
East Stroudsburg, PA 18302
Thank you for helping to make new dreams come true for the children of the community.
The playground build has been put off until July 15 - 19, 2015. We need community donations to help us finish off paying for the materials needed to start the build. Consider just $5 or even $10 to make this happen for the children.
THERE IS STILL A $100 VISA GIFT CARD DRAWING GOING ON. FOR EACH $10 YOU DONATE YOUR NAME WILL BE PUT INTO A DRAWING FOR THIS CARD ....
Resica Community Playground is currently an 18 year old wooden playground that is in need of "regeneration". This new playground will be built by community residents in 5 days. There will be lots of joy, excitement, aches and pains during this process.
The Resica Community Playground Project is a new glassroots non-profit group formed under the aupices of the Resica Elementary PTO. Although the new playground will once again be located behind Resica Elementary School, in the old playgrounds current site, the East Stroudsburg Area School District is not involved with any of the actual fundraising activities to rebuild the playground. Our organization is formed exclusively of volunteers, therefore, 100% of all fundraising dollars go directly toward the playground project.
This new playground will be a unique 8,800 square foot playground. Plans call for a science, arts, historical, and fitness themed playground that will be constructed with green materials (95% post-consumer recycled plastic). This new playground will not only host a main playing area, a tot park and an amphitheater that were all designed with the help of the children from our schools. This playground is also handicapped accessible.
