The Salvation Army will need volunteers for the day of the build and ahead of time to clear the land.  The playground will be used by children in the surrounding neighborhood and those who are part of Salvation Army programs.  “We see a lot of families throughout the week on our building through our soup kitchen, especially during the summertime,” she said.  “We have youth programs for kids of all ages.” Strissel adds the new playground will be a safe place for kids to enjoy the outdoors.
