Sophia's Playground Project

$5,314 of $8,400 goal

Raised by 4 people in 29 months
This project all started from the generosity of Sophia, a 13-year-old Watervliet resident, who saw the need for a new playground in her community. After her younger brother took a bad tumble off a broken piece of equipment, she realized she wanted to make a difference by putting in a new playset and impact resistant mulch. Currently, there is only a swing set and one small slide at Brotherhood Park. Sophia wishes to clean the park, set down rubber mulch and put in a new bright red playset. All of this will be done through a community build, so the community can come together and take pride in the playground they built themselves.

Sophia has teamed up with Freely Clothing. 10% of all your purchases through Freely Clothing goes straight towards funding Sophia's Playground Project.

Sophia has also been honored to have the help of the Albany & Troy Lions Club. They are currently in the works of attaining a $4,000 grant to go towards Sophia's Playground Project! If you'd like to make a tax deductible donation please follow the instructions at the end of this page http://albanytroylions.org/Playground.htm ‌!

Hi Sophia's Playground Project supporters! We're aiming for a Spring 2017 community playground build! The donation meter doesn't display this yet, but a $4,000 grant application from our friends at the Albany & Troy Lions Club was submitted in January. We are so excited to get the playground built and could use your help raising the last couple thousand of our goal!
