People for Parks donated 62 basketballs (big and small), 111 soccer balls (sizes 1-4), 25 bats, softball and baseballs, and 49 footballs (big and small). The sporting equipment will be distributed by the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board over the next couple of weeks.
Since 1977, People for Parks has identified and funded over $2 million in special projects and events that improve Minneapolis and its parks. Projects like the annual Arbor Day tree planting, updated sports equipment, concerts in the parks, the picnic shelter at Lake Harriet, the swimming lesson scholarships, and bike helmets for children. Join us in contributing to our beautiful park system by making a donation!
