GRAND ISLAND- The Greater Grand Island Community Foundation has presented a check for nearly $67,000 to the Central Community College Foundation.
The funds are earmarked for the Pirnie Inclusive Playground, a $1.5 million multigenerational inclusive playground to be constructed at Ryder Park in Grand Island. The 27,000-square-foot facility was conceptualized by occupational therapy assistant program students at CCC-Grand Island. The Pirnie Inclusive Playground will offer play experiences for three stages of development, including spaces designed specifically for children ages 2 to 5, 5 to 11 and 12 and older.
With this grant and gifts from multiple donors, the Pirnie Inclusive Playground project is at 75 percent of the project goal.
