Mindy Bryant  SAN DIEGO, CA
My name is Mindy and I am a mom of one of the preschoolers at Pacific Beach Presbyterian Preschool. Recently the big playground was vandalized. The playground was covered in some kind of black tar substance. Sadly, the playground had been deemed a total loss and has to be completely replaced. The replacement will not be ready for an entire month. That means the entire large playground area has been closed off and the kids now only have a smaller outside area to play in. To top it off, days before this happened - the Little Tykes Climber playground in that smaller area broke and had to be removed. Now the kids are left with no slides, climbers or swings at all to play with.

I am trying to raise money to buy a new Little Tykes Climber playground for the small area outside ($500). Also to buy a security camera system ($1000) to be installed to help prevent future vandalization!

All donations will go 100% to the preschool to buy a new climber and security system.


THANK YOU!!!!

Here is the NBC News Story Article: San Diego Police Department investigators are searching for the suspects responsible for vandalizing a preschool playground at a church in Pacific Beach. Detectives say that sometime between Saturday, Sept. 13 and Sunday, Sept. 15, unknown suspects vandalized the playground at Pacific Beach Presbyterian Church located at 1675 Garnet Ave. The suspects dumped a black, tar-like substance over the playground structure and grounds, leaving large stains all over the equipment. Police say the act caused more than $5,000 in damages. A five-gallon bucket containing the black substance was later found by investigators near the playground. Anyone with information on the church playground vandalism should contact SDPD Northern Division Detectives at (619) 552-2700 or call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
