2017 Flint Playground Project


Flint Kids Play Project

Following the successful playground build at Berston Field House 2016, organizations have partnered and built two more playgrounds for the children of Flint in 2017! Partners include the Make An Impact Foundation, United Way of Genesee County, The City of Flint, Community Foundation of Greater Flint, FOX66, NBC25, Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce, and Keep Genesee County Beautiful.  

Thank you to Flint Child Health and Development Fund of the Foundation for Flint, United Way of Genesee County and Make an Impact Foundation for kickstarting this event with their financial contribution to the build as well as FOX66, NBC25 and CW46 for their in-kind marketing support we are within $20,000 of our goal to build these playgrounds.

The playground builds took place the week of August 14th to coincide with the Flint Homecoming event held by the Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce. Flint homecoming welcomed back Flint & Genesee residents to provide opportunities to network and re-engage their native community.  For further information on Flint Homecoming, please visit www.flinthomecoming.com.
