WFE PTO Receives Playground Fund Donation from Fuccillo
Monday, August 15, 2016 -
The Fuccillo Automotive Group recently donated $12,000 to the Willow Field Elementary Parent Teacher Organization’s Playground Fund.
“A safe and reliable playground can have a ‘HUGE’ impact on keeping kids active,” said Billy Fuccillo, president of the Fuccillo Automotive Group. “We are excited to have been able to support Willow Field Elementary on this project and help meet the needs of all students and the community.”
A few years ago, the WFE PTO recognized the need for a new and more accessible playground for the school’s students. The group began fund-raising in September 2012 for the two-phase project which would replace the original wooden playground that was 25 years old and deteriorating from more than two decades of continuous use and harsh weather conditions.
Phase One of the project was completed in June 2015 and included the installation of eight swings, a Lunar Burst Aeronet climber and PlayBooster playsystem with a slide. In addition, the new playground includes two ramps and a molded bucket swing and follows American with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines.
Fuccillo’s donation will support the second phase of the project that will extend the PlayBooster structure and add an assortment of stand-alone pieces. Phase Two is expected to be completed in June 2017.
