WE Play - Help us build a playground!

For 26 years, the Big Toy playground has been a centerpiece for fun, collaboration, and exploration at Wilkesboro Elementary. But 26 years of well-loved play left lots of wear and tear, and we must build a new playground. We consider this to be our most urgentneed at school. The new playground will be used by all students at our school.

On March 24, we launched a month-long campaign to raise money to build a new playground this summer. Students received an envelope containing information about our Playground Capital Campaign. We hope students willreach out to friends, family, neighbors, and businesses in hopethat small efforts will come together to accomplish our goal.

We have a wonderful opportunity to have the funds that we raise be matched by the Stone Family Foundation.

We realize that money is tight for all families, and we wouldn't ask for donations if we didn't truly need your help. We've tried to limit asking for funds this year as we've been planning for this important fundraiser. We hope to offer incentives so that all students can participate.
Please consider donating to our #WEplay playground project!

We ask that you help by getting the word of our playground out to your family and friends. We hope to capture the power ofcrowdfunding through a Fundly page that you can share on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Please share this link to our Fundly page on your social media toget the word out!

We've also provided links to our fundraising incentive page AND our donation rosters.

While raising funds during a pandemic is sure to be a challenge, we know that small actions combined together will accomplish great things. Every dollar counts, especially when matched by grant funds, and we are optimistic and hopeful that we can do it! If we've learned anything this year, it's that WE CAN DO HARD THINGS!

Thank you for your support of our school!
