Sammy's swings for MEMS playground

Samuel has been battling a benign tumor that affected his breathing, eye and brain. He has had numerous operations and we are hoping that at this time it has been totally removed. We are so blessed to be surrounded with amazing friends, family and community.  So many people have reached out to us to ask how they can help. Samuel loves his school and he loves to swing on the playground to ease his anxiety. The playground is outdated and needs a lot of work. His school is in need of raising the remainder of the funds to build a new playground.  Samuel has decided he wants to help his community and raise the remaining money so that all children can enjoy the swings as much as he does. He is such a kind and loving kid who reminds us everyday what it means to be grateful.
All funds we raise will go towards the MEMS playground fund.  This money will complete the amount needed for the new playground and construction.  Parent volunteers, as well as a company representative, will construct the much needed playground.  The fund raising needs to happen before the end of the school year. 
Please help us celebrate a positive in our community and put smiles on children's faces. 
     Thank you everyone for your donations.  I am Kim Johnson, Samuel’s mother. He is so excited to have helped raise this money for his school  Manchester Elementary Middle School in Manchester, VT. This money will be put directly toward the playground fund.
