TEC Awarded $15,000 Let’s Play Construction Grant from Dr Pepper Snapple Group and National Non-Profit KaBOOM!
Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded TEC a $15,000 Let’s Play Community Construction Grant that will be used to build A Place for Everyone to Play, our fully accessible playground at TEC Campus School.
The grant is part of Let’s Play, an initiative by DPS to provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority. Unstructured, child-directed play has proven to help kids develop physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually, yet today’s kids have less time and fewer opportunities to play than any previous generation. As a result of expanded Let’s Play grants and projects, more than 1 million kids will benefit from new or improved playgrounds around the nation by the end of 2016.
