Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge Dealers and KaBOOM! Join Together to Build a New Playground

Denver Front Range Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge Dealers spearhead the effort to provide a safe place for neighborhood children to play

Denver, Jun 12, 2008  -  More than 200 volunteers from the Denver Front Range Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge Dealers; The Chrysler Foundation; Chrysler Financial; Johnson Elementary; organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the local community joined together today to build a new and secure playground at Johnson Elementary School in Denver.

Frank Fountain, President of The Chrysler Foundation, led the volunteers in building a state-of-the-art playground to serve the needs of the community. The new playground will provide more than 400 children who attend Johnson Elementary with a safe and enjoyable place to play.

Planning for the playground began in April when local children and community leaders met with organizers from KaBOOM! and Chrysler to develop their "dream" playgrounds. The children's drawings were used to create the final playground designs. The new playground’s design is based on drawings provided by students, who attended a Design Day event in April 2008 with the organizers from KaBOOM!

“Every child should have access to a play area that is safe and encourages physical activity,” said Jeff O'Leary, President – Denver Front Range Chrysler Jeep Dealer Advertising Association and Dealer Principal - Go Chrysler Jeep West. "This new playground, designed by local children and built by volunteers, is a small part of our long-term commitment to the Denver community."

"KaBOOM! is committed to bringing play back to the neighborhood one playground at a time,” said KaBOOM! CEO and Co-founder Darell Hammond. “Every child deserves a place to run, jump, have fun and just be a kid. We are proud to work with Chrysler to give the children in this Denver neighborhood a great place to play.”

The project is the second of 25 playgrounds scheduled to be built across the country by KaBOOM!, The Chrysler Foundation, Chrysler Financial and Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealerships. The playground is also one of more than 225 builds KaBOOM! will lead across the country in 2008, in an effort to provide an enjoyable place to play within walking distance of every child in America.
