Students at the Kennedy Elementary School in Franklin, MA are enjoying its new beautiful new playground, thanks to a lot of local fundraising by Kennedy School supporters and a generous grant from a national charity.
Old playground an eyesore
The old playground was made of wood that had gotten very weathered and cracked.
There was a constant risk of the children getting splinters – not a fun structure on which to play!

More than $120,000 raised
The new playground cost in excess of $85,000, plus the cost to remove the old structure and site prep work.
Kennedy parents successfully raised that amount – and more! By working with the The Kennedy Parent Communication Council (PCC) and tirelessly pursued fundraising, Kennedy parents garnered $120,000 in donations. They even entered project in the national Pepsi Refresh Project – and won a $50,000 grant!
