S.A.Y. Play Center Gets Spruced Up
June 26 | When the S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center at Lipke Park reopens after the Fourth of July, the students enrolled for the summer session will enjoy a fresh start — in more ways than one.
Nearly 40 A Time to Help volunteers spent last Saturday morning (June 24) giving the inside of the facility a scrub-down, while another group tackled the center’s vast campus, including weeding and picking up trash along the fence lines.
It was ATTH’s first visit to S.A.Y. Play in two years, when a team of volunteers worked to prepare the center for its Grand Opening in the fall of 2015.
From cleaning windows and wiping kitchen cupboards, to dusting off book shelves in the academic center (called The D.E.E.P.), just about every nook and cranny of the facility was freshened-up after the recently-completed 2016-17 academic year.
Save the date for July 15, 2017 for our next project. Details to come.
