Sunderland Foundation makes generous $25,000 gift

kids on playground 2The FSGC Therapeutic Play Park is closer to becoming a reality, thanks to a very generous $25,000 gift from the Sunderland Foundation of Overland Park.
 
Brenda Mills, CEO, said, “The Sunderland Foundation has an outstanding reputation for helping children and families by making gifts to build new facilities and enhance existing ones. We’re extremely grateful that they’ve chosen to partner with us on the Therapeutic Play Park.”
 
The Therapeutic Play Park will enable FSGC children ages 5-12 to acquire important social and emotional skills that come from outdoor free play. These include sharing, taking turns and conflict resolution.
 
The Sunderland Foundation has invested in bricks and mortar and special projects for nonprofit organizations for over 60 years. By doing so, the Foundation makes it possible for those organizations to fulfill their missions better and create stronger, safer and more vibrant communities.
 
Over $306,000 of the $354,006 needed – or 86.5 percent – has been raised. The fundraising campaign will conclude this fall, and construction is slated to begin in March 2016.
