Volunteers Build Playground In A Day

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) More than 200 volunteers endured a cold rainy morning, Saturday, so children had a place to play by the time the sun came out.

After some building, digging and mulching, this park was transformed into a dream playground- in just one day.

The new playground's design was based on drawings created by local school children.

With the help of some hard-working volunteers, the children's imaginations became a colorful reality.

"When the kids came off the buses, they were literally saying, 'Yay, Yay, Yay'  they are so excited, they've been waiting,' said event organizer Aileen Pruit.

The project was sponsored by PNC bank and by "Kaboom," which is a nationwide organization that plans to build more than 200-hundred playgrounds across the country in 2011.
