Playing is an essential part of development for children. It fosters creativity, the ability to interact and understand working with others, problem solving, and most importantly - how to have fun! Too many children do not have the opportunity to run, slide, build blocks, and imagine themselves as superheros fighting butterflies under a canopy of wild flowers while a dinosaur is creeping up behind them! But Peace Playland Association understands this, which is why they have built a room full of fun for our local children. William Barkwell, one of our exceptional volunteers and Donation Committee members (and dedicated husband to Peace Playland President, Amanda Barkwell), presented a cheque to Michelle (with little helper Soren Kristensen) to help them offset their annual expenses. As William and Amanda are volunteers, they were eligible to receive $1,000 from PRPD through our Team Member Volunteer Program. Volunteering: that's how to make a difference. Kids at play. Our world is just a little bit happier because of it.
