Last year, SVDS raised funds to help build a shade structure at the East Lawn Children's Park, a beloved local playground. Through generous donations from members and industry partners, we raised $10,125, enough to cover the entire cost of the shade structure.
The East Lawn playground officially re-opened this past Friday, and SVDS was honored at the ribbon-cutting ceremony. With members of the Sacramento city council and local news media present, we were recognized for helping to provide a sun-safe environment for all the children who will use this park.
I've attached some photos of the ceremony and our shade structure in our gallery. Thank you to everyone who donated, and to all SVDS members for your support!
