Service Projects & Playground Builds

Every year MACS volunteers give back through a volunteer playground installation or other service project.  Communities can apply for members of the section to install a playground in a neighborhood in need.

 

In 2017, MACS built a playground for Baker City, OR.

Watch the video to see what a playground build entails.

 

 

For a great resource guide on how to organize and implement a playground installation project with volunteers, download our Guide to Hosting a Volunteer Playground Installation Project.
