Moore Tornado Damage May 20th1

MOORE, Okla. – Children in Moore are encouraged to dream big as a handful of companies team up to make those dreams a reality.

Tuesday, children went to Emmaus Baptist Church to design their dream playground.

Kids will be able to draw what they want and elements from the pictures will be incorporated into a final design for the new community playground.

 

The playground will be built on Sept. 7 at the church, which will serve as the site for children who were supposed to attend Briarwood Elementary School.

Organizers say in the aftermath of the tornadoes, play becomes even more critical as it creates a sense of normalcy and provides an emotional outlet for children.

The project is being made possible with the help of the Moore Public School District, Emmaus Baptist Church, Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children, Nike, Inc. and KaBOOM!.
