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.
