Playground volunteers sought

The bars, swings, seats and ladders for a new childrenÕs playground at Park Elementary School in Hayward will soon be in place. All thatÕs needed are helping hands to assemble the structures for the kids to enjoy.
Officials from the Hayward Unified School District are looking for volunteers to join an assembly team that will build the playground on Thursday, Oct. 26 at the school, 411 Larchmont St. About125 volunteers are already committed to the project, but about 75 more are needed.
Volunteers must be 18 or older and will participate in numerous tasks during the work day including putting together playground structures, mixing concrete and moving mulch. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes. Gloves, goggles and other safety items will be provided and child care will be available for those who needed it. Volunteers will receive breakfast, lunch and a T-shirt to wear during the project.
The playground build project will happen rain or shine and is a joint venture between the school district and private companies CarMax Foundation and KaBOOM.
