Dear Friends of All Peoples,
All Peoples is a trusted safe space in South LA Vernon-Central (zip code 90011) for youth and families. We extend use of our playground area to our families and community members to gather and enjoy the outdoors.
Many know that there is a concern about safety with reported gang activities in the area. The closest public playground for children to play is at Trinity Park which is about 1 mile away. Due to these safety concerns, Youth in our neighborhood are unable to participate in most neighborhood and family activities (i.e. trick or treating).
Our All Peoples playground area is fenced in, and we welcome youth and families to take advantage of the safe space year-round. Approximately 306 Youth use our play equipment per day including All Peoples Preschool, After-school and tutoring programs, Summer Day Camp, DCSF Participants and Youth registered in the South Central Sports League. Due to the extended use, our playground has been in dire need of repair and upgrades.
We are grateful to announce that Warner Music Group, in partnership with KaBOOM!, has agreed to sponsor a brand new playground for our All Peoples Youth and our South LA Vernon-Central Community, and we need your help to bring this new playground to our youth and families.
Volunteers will be needed on Tuesday, June 18th and Thursday, June 20th to help build the new All Peoples playground, and we hope that you can join us to help bring a great new play space for our Youth. Below you will find more information and instructions on how to sign up as a volunteer.
We are grateful for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in June to help create this brand new play space for our community.
