TRI-CAP receives playground upgrades From Local Donors

PlaygroundJasper (Local Sources) – TRI-CAP has completed its three-year term as the Rotary Club of Jasper’s charity of choice. As such, a focused effort was made by the Rotary Club to redirect fundraising dollars from the Club to TRI-CAP.

To date, the Rotary Club has contributed a handmade outdoor musical playground device, a used minivan, and the majority of the funding and volunteers needed to replace TRI-CAP’s playground (see photo to right) wood mulch with a long-lasting, colorful rubber mulch.  The total value of all donations (excluding volunteer time) received over the past three years exceeds the $13,400 investment from the Rotary Club of Jasper.

TRI-CAP is ecstatic to have received such impactful support from the Rotary Club of Jasper!

In a news release, TRI-CAP Executive Director Joyce Fleck says, “All items are investments which we otherwise could never have afforded.”

She goes on to say, ” Even better, these sustainable items meet our federal grants’ local match requirements.  The volunteer time from the twelve Rotarians over two Saturdays was incredible.  They had a great time and made sure that every detail was taken care of.”

To complete Rotary’s final project with the playground mulch replacement, the Dubois County Community Foundation contributed $2,500 and one Rotarian’s employer, People Ready, contributed an additional $1,000. More in-kind services were provided through the use of equipment provided by Evanston Valley Enterprises and Roesner Farms.  Everyone at TRI-CAP is extremely grateful for the local collaboration of so many groups and individuals.
