Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany held a “Kiwanis One Day” at Parsippany Child Day Care Center on Saturday, May 17. The volunteers are cleaning and preparing the playground to make room for the new playground equipment. The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany’s Foundation recently awarded a $5,000 grant to the Parsippany Child Day Care Center, to help them purchase new playground equipment. The Mission of Kiwanis Club is to change the world one child and one community at a time.

Peggy Rauscher said “Staff members and families at Parsippany Child Day Care Center are excited to be working on the rebuild of our Preschool Playground. The installation will begin in June 2014. We will celebrate a new Toddler Playground (Fall 2013) and Preschool Playground (Summer 2014) with an official ceremony.”
