How was this project connected to UU?

Accepting one another and encouraging spiritthout a safe playground for our religious education program.  Being without our playground hampers our religious education and our ability to encourage new memberships at UUCFM.  We know from our pastual growth begins at the youngest of ages. As Penelope Leach has stated, "For a small child there is no division between playing and learning." Right now, we are wi experience that a safe and viable playground for our pre-K-5th grade students contributes largely to the vitality and success of our religious education program.

Full Description of Project

The religious education program at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fort Myers (UUCFM) is at the heart of the future of our church and our community.  Our 20-year old playground needs to be rebuilt.  UUCFM has raised $5,000 toward the rebuild; we are short $2,000.  If you could contribute to our new playground campaign, we can begin the work this summer.  The professional playground company should take about 3 weeks to complete the rebuilding. Our congregation's children and those of our guests each week will be most appreciative of your generosity.
