But even when we had a playground, it was not accessible for children in wheelchairs or other kids with special needs. After looking at the old, rusty, and closed down playground, I made a decision to get a new playground built for my school.
This year, I volunteered to be part of my school’s committee called EESAC. When they asked for student’s concerns, I told them that the kids need a playground. I was told that the school could not afford it because it is a LOT of money. That’s when I decided to raise money for a new playground and make it accessible for ALL students with special needs so every one can enjoy. About 18% of the students at Fienberg have special needs. Some of these children are in wheelchairs and some have developmental disabilities such as autism and intellectual disabilities. And I know that they would love to have a playground that can access.
We are trying to raise $100 thousand dollars for this project. So I asked my father to set up a Go Fund Me account for the PTA.
We need your help to rebuild our playground and make it accessible for ALL children.
Please help with whatever you can.
