Consider This - Palmetto Adventure Land

Horry County, SC - By Ted Fortenberry - bio | email

Palmetto Adventure Land is a playground that will be constructed in late September in the Carolina Forest area, but this project is a little different than most playground projects. It will take hundreds of volunteers to make it happen.

The slogan for this project - Imagined by Kids, Built by Volunteers and Strengthening our Community - says it all.

Consider This: The Horry County project is a great opportunity for the community to come together to build a one-of-a-kind, latest, and greatest play area for the kids in our community. One very nice feature in the design is that this playground facility will provide opportunities for children of all abilities and will be handicap accessible.

It's similar to an old fashioned barn raising, where friends, family and neighbors worked together to construct the building. In this case, organizers are looking for nearly 175 people each day with the goal of having the project complete within one week. Here's the good news -volunteers don't need to have any special construction skills or abilities to help.

The people of the region are wonderful when it comes to providing support for the community. Let's continue that tradition with the Palmetto Adventure Land project and show our kids what community service is all about.

We need your help, so please volunteer today.
