Two of our Outdoor Play Intervention sites, The Genesis Center in Providence, and the Y’s Owl Nursery School – Kent County YMCA in Warwick, were selected to participate in the Blue Across Rhode Island initiative, a program of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island, which provided 70 volunteers for a day of service on September 21, 2018. The weather was great, but the spirit was greater as the volunteers took to task to transform each of the play spaces.

Thank you to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island who provided volunteers at each of these sites, Tupelo Design Studio for creating a beautiful plan to build from as well as volunteer services and donated plant materials, Wild and Scenic Inc. for donating a myriad of beautiful plants, and to the staff and families that donated time, funds, tools, and materials to complete projects that will certainly engage the children who attend these programs for years to come.
