Tyler Parks and Recreation is seeking donations of arts and crafts supplies, table games, sporting equipment and youth reading books for its free, summer playground program that will take place at five park locations for 10 weeks beginning in June.
“Instead of throwing away an old board game or baseballs that no longer get used, please donate them to our summer playground program where the children will get hours of amusement out of them,” said Ann Santana, the Glass Recreation Center Supervisor.  “We really try to get the kids into an active, healthy lifestyle at a young age, and that includes lots of outdoor games and activities.”
Any financial donations or sponsorships would also be greatly appreciated. If your organization would like to help please call (903) 595-7271 or drop off your donations at the Glass Recreation Center at 501 W. 32nd St.
“Our summer youth programs are extremely important to the community, so we want to do everything we can to ensure their success,” says Parks Director Stephanie Rollings.  “And this call for donations comes just in time for everyone’s spring cleaning.”
All children age 5-12 are invited to take part in the summer playground program.
